While reading the Catholic Bibles Blog I began to notice a nice trend of readers sharing their bibles rebound in genuine leather and cowhide. I decided it was something I wanted to do, but I reasoned, if they can rebind a bible, could they maybe combine the bible with another book? I called the two companies most frequently mentioned on the website, Leonard’s and AA Leather. They both said they could in fact combine two books, as long as the books were the same size.
One afternoon I was reading the Compendium and I noticed something interesting. I had my bible out when I realized how close they were in size. I grabbed my tape measure out and sure enough, they were both 6”x9”!
“Eureka!” I said, (or at least would have if I were this was a movie). I would combine the Didache Bible, with the Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church! These are the two books I carry around with me all the time anyway when I study my bible, it makes sense to place them under the same roof!
I boxed them up and off they went to sunny South Florida at the headquarters of AA Leather. I patiently waited each day by my mailbox. After only two short weeks, the mailman knocked on my door and handed my a big package!
I chose forest green as the color with leather cowhide. And couldn’t be more happy with the work Andrew and the whole gang at AA Leather did for my bible. I love it so much, I want to just place it on my shelf and not touch it! We all know that’s not going to happen!
