Paper Chase Press hardcover books set the industry standard for high quality book making. We produce every book by hand in our shop, where we've been making heirloom-quality paper goods since 1976. Perfect for a portfolio, album, brand showcase or self-published title, our hardcover books employ only traditional binding and finishing methods, assuring that each project is unique and withstands the test of time.
Our signature layflat hardcover books feature a built-in hinge mechanism that allows your pages to lay totally flat. These books are then meticulously sewn by hand before being casebound.
Custom Foil Stamping
Linen covers require custom stamping to have artwork on the cover. Choose from a range of foil colors, or opt for a more subtle blind deboss.
Image Wrap Covers
Our image wrap hardcovers feature a 7mm scuff-free matte lamination for added protection, and a premium linen spine. Choose from black, charcoal gray, royal blue, or natural white linen spines.
For books that lay perfectly flat, upgrade to our signature heavyweight layflat paper. This unique hinged material is twice as thick as our standard silk coated stock but features the same coated finish.
Handmade Linen Covers
Paper Chase Press uses only premium American-made linen for all of its handmade hardcovers. Choose from black, charcoal gray, royal blue, or natural white.
All Paper Chase Press hardcover books feature premium linen paper endsheets, which provide both durability and an elegant finish. Choose from black, gray, or white.
Handmade in Los Angeles
