Meet the Author

In these past thirty years Arthur has watched the world of antique leather bindings come into its own, possibly because of the increased building of larger homes with libraries or because of the never-ending stream of decorating shows that encourage a more "expensive" look. Regardless, in the years between then and now, fine leather-bound books have, like many other collectibles, become very popular.

    IT'S ABOUT TIME

    This book is an invaluable resource for the true collector of fine and rare bindings. To my knowledge there has never been a book dedicated to the subject of fine leather bound books. Boutiette is the foremost expert in the field. As a collector, I am truly grateful that he took the time to catalogue his vast knowledge into this book. No true collector's library will be complete without a copy of 'Boutiette's Leather Bound Books.'
