Bonded Leather Books
Bonded leather is a composite leather made from leather fiber. It has the look of leather, but not necessarily the feel of genuine leather. It is most often used in bible coverings, corporate presentations, and board meetings. While not as strong and long lasting as genuine leather, it does well for foil stamping in gold, silver and other colors is often as good as hot foil stamping for genuine leather. It is often used for short term use where perception is the key factor and more economical costs need to be factored.
