Contact aBoBoBook to inquire about creating a custom handmade guest book using a cover image that you provide.

There are many options, but the base price includes an image that you provide on the cover of a handmade book that's approximately 4" x 7" (or comparable square, horizontal, or vertical format), comprised of six signatures (for a total of 120 double-sided blank pages), and our image editing, enhancement, color matching, et cetera, as appropriate.

The end-product is your image on the cover of a personalized, coptic-bound, blank book that you have designed.


COVER STOCK is a paper that is thicker and more durable than the blank pages that make up the interior of the book.

Each SIGNATURE (or section) is comprised of FOLIOS (individual sheets of paper) that have been cut to size, stacked together, punched or drilled, scored, folded in half, and pressed. Multiple sections are attached to each other using a chain stitch linking across the spine. When finished, it has a braided appearance.

COPTIC BINDING describes modern bookbinding techniques that were developed in Egypt by early Christian Copts between the second and eleventh centuries AD. Because of its structure, a handmade coptic-bound book can lie flat when open. Coptic-binding is done by hand, so each book is unique.
