Unusual Bindings

I’m putting together another installment of Explorations in Stone-Campbell Bibliography.  To get in the mood for it, check out abebooks.com‘s recent Unusual Bindings e-newsletter.

To my knowledge, the first Stone-Campbell book bound in snakeskin, steel or fireproof asbestos has yet to appear.*  But as my post will point out, our books more or less kept pace with American publishing conventions, and there are some handsome books in our heritage.  If you love the art of a book as much as you appreciate the contents of one, you’ll like this next installment.

*Feel free to suggest possible Stone-Campbell titles bound in snakeskin, steel or fireproof asbestos in the comments…

One thought on “Unusual Bindings

  1. Using “Naugahyde” (versus leather): for anything hoary that remotely reads theologically systematic while insistingly denying any semblance thereof. Likely candidates: all “classic” reprints from Gospel Advocate.
