• Leather Bound Portfolio Book For Graduate Photographer

June 06, 2021

This was a project that began as a gift, for a photography graduate in Canada. An 11 x 17 photographers portfolio book, given as a graduation present by proud parents to their newly graduated Photographer daughter. Actually it ended that way as well, but originally the idea was for a fabric or buckram covered portfolio and it was only after a visit to our studio that leather was discovered and leather was promptly settled on. 

Sorry, have I over sold the conversion from buckram to leather? My apologies, but we seldom get asked for leather bound design or photography portfolios. Reason being, that they are a great deal more expensive and photographers tend to go with buckram or the 3.5mm thick, full on veg tanned leather. 

Leather bound portfolios start off more expensive because the hides cost more and the edges have to skived or parred down with a knife so that they fold nicely and neatly over the inner board, so all in all a more luxury product (I'm sure you will agree!) 

If you would like to see and learn more about the portfolios we make, we have a page dedicated to portfolio books and portfolio boxes which can be found here

As the Sotheby’s catalogue entry says “Accompanying the car is a truly immense file of documentation…” enough to fill two 65mm ring binders and two 100mm deep box files as it happens. A car with this much pedigree, history and provenance is going to come with a lot of paper work.
