YOUR UNIQUE By M. BOOK CLUTCH

pink clutch bag and navy clutch bag

Each bag is one-of-a-kind with the customer's wishes handcrafted into reality.  Choose your favourite book title for the front cover, and then add your name - or the name of the recipient - to the back of the book clutch.  Recreate a treasured book for yourself or offer a unique gift to someone special.  

We provide a fully personalised service and we love to help our customers create their own work of art.  We hope you will enjoy this experience!  By M. will guide and assist you at each step of the creation of your book clutch.  We want the final product to be a joint production between you and our team of hand-crafters in Naples. 

 

Traditional, Luxury, Limited Editions

You can choose from our traditional one-colour book clutch collection, as well as our luxury two-colour collection, and finally we offer some exciting limited edition book clutches.  

 

 

STEP 1 - CHOOSE YOUR TITLE

We can turn any title into a book clutch.  Let us know your favourite book and we will reproduce a book clutch depicting the first edition in the original language, including the author's name as well as the date and the place where it was first published.  For more examples and inspiration please visit our Facebook page or visit the galleries on our website.

STEP 2 -  CHOOSE THE COLOUR

The colours of our traditional book clutch collection are the typical colours associated with the leather bound books of past centuries: Bordeaux, Black, Blue, Bright Red and Dark Green. We now also provide our luxury editions in two colours. You can choose  your favourite combination with bright colourful leather or white parchment. 

Book clutches are subject to the availability of the leather, and colours might differ slightly from what is shown in pictures.

STEP 3 -  CHOOSE A GOLD DECORATION FOR THE COVER

We have a large selection of historical bronze finishing tools, allowing us to produce stunning gold impressions on the front and back cover of your book clutch.  Artisans impress the puncheons on the leather with the traditional technique using gold leaf.  There are a variety of embellishments and decorations to choose from.  Our most popular include traditional decorative features.  We can also use impressions of crowns, stars and flowers.  We even have a prancing pony!  Simply choose the ones you like.

 

STEP 4 -   EX LIBRIS

Finally, we personalise your book clutch with the name of the owner at the back.  The bag is unique, fully personalised and one of a kind.  Above the name we use the “Ex Libris” phrase: in ancient Latin, literally meaning “from the library of…”.

DELIVERY

Time of delivery is more or less four weeks from the time of your order, depending upon demand and availability of leathers.  We are sorry to those in a hurry, but a quality book clutch requires time, patience and passion!
