His business is focused on offering books that are truly beautiful as well as being significant literary works. In addition to fine leather bindings, livre d'artiste works, and fine art photography, Larry has been working with artists to create unique fine bindings to take the "livre d'artiste" experience to a new level, and enhance the overall reader experience, by having the externals of a book play as important a role as the art containined within the book.
