Leather Big Book Covers
NOTICE: Here I sit,
recovering from a heart repair and find that I am running out of time
during each day to finish the things I used to finish with ease.
tentatively decided to wrap-up the Desert Leathercraft LLC business
making Big Book Covers. Beginning 2018 I will not be taking new
orders for leather big book covers. Additionally, orders already
taken, and any orders and paid for will be experiencing a delay in
delivery. If this is unacceptable to anyone with an order pending, I
will happily refund their payment in full with my apologies. I will
continue to take orders in 2017, but the lead time will be as long as
in the future, perhaps I will be in a position to restart the leather
book cover creations.
(10/23/2017): I will continue in 2018, there will some changes to
pricing, and options available. Details will come in January.
Still running behind this year.
