"I ordered a copy of The Illustrated History of the Countryside for myself. I went with your recommended binding options and not only was the book beautifully presented and bound, but there was real thought in the colours and materials used in the binding. A really personal book which I will treasure."
"I have just used Prometheus Bound Books for the first time and it’s AWESOME! I’m obsessed with finding unusual and special presents (I can’t remember the last time I gave someone a candle) and this is the holy grail! The service was perfect and the resulting book is utterly beautiful."
"It’s great to see a British company carrying the torch for this traditional type craftsmanship, with a contemporary twist. Well done on bringing book-binding into the modern world!"
"I was given a copy of Kobbe’s Opera for my birthday and it was one of my favourite presents. There was a beautiful inscription on the cover from my daughter and it is a gift I will cherish forever. How wonderful to find a gift site which is truly personal!"
"I received a copy of Good Night Mister Tom bound in black patent leather as a birthday present. It looks stunning and really stands out on my book shelf – I’ll certainly be back for more!"
"Fantastic, it was the perfect gift for my Mother’s birthday, her favourite novel, uniquely bound in red leather with a special message from her two sons embossed on the back – she loved it!"
"My black leather version of Moby Dick now sits proudly as the centre-piece of my bookshelf – absolutely stunning. Great service all-round."
"Absolutely stunning books – the perfect gift for my father, thank you. I couldn’t resist ordering a few of my favourites to start my own collection!"
So, so beautiful, I want every book "on my shelf bound in pink lizard! Not only are they a great design feature, but its a brilliant way of making your books last forever!"
"I love to read a good book. I love it to be good enough to read more than once and I cherish a book that can be read many times and still excite and entertain. Then, surely the book deserves to be dressed properly to remind us of its importance to its owner. I have had several modern sets of books bound as a set, because I have enjoyed them so much. I hope I can do more, to keep them as I enjoy them, a treasured read."
"Prometheus sourced an early edition of James Joyce’s Ulysses for a wedding gift. Not only was I delighted with the quality of workmanship and the abundant choice of covers and finishes but the recipients were most touched at such a thoughtful and unique present. The personal service I received in planning this important gift was really impressive."
Prometheus Bound is a wonderful idea: you outfit your books in your own style, like going to a tailor. Choose the form, choose the fabric, make something for and of yourself, something uniquely your own, or (better yet) someone else’s. What better gift for personal or corporate occasions? A book by Oscar Wilde in pink patent leather? Or Shakespeare in elegant purple leather? Rather than having to pick something already bound, as usually happens, here you can supply your own titles, pick your own bindings, create something original, and most of all have some fun.
Having spent hours trying, and failing to think of a unique gift for my friends wedding, Prometheus Bound was recommended to me. I was able to give my friends the personal present they deserved, within budget. The personalization process enabled me to choose a binding suited to the wedding theme – silver moire with a pink spine. I hope it will be a present that they remember forever.
