The seller says: "Maybe it's because I'm from Colorado, a cowgirl at heart and by heritage, but I'm so in love with this hand-crafted mid-century brown leather book cover. It's not dated or signed, but the size gives its age away as likely from the late 1940s-60s; in other words, mid-century. Back when it was handmade - stamped, hand-tooled and whip-stitched, it was likely meant to hold a Zane Grey paperback like 'Riders of the Purple Sage'. Today, your small journal will fit comfortably inside - or maybe even a vintage French paperback, like Camus' 'TheRebel.'
It can ride along with you in your purse or satchel or sit handsomely on your bedside table. The color is a rich caramel brown - evoking Western saddles and cowboy boots. It's in very good condition on all sides. There are some light signs of wear on the front cover (upper right) - but nothing remarkable. This piece is truly a work of Western art -to hold your own vintage book or your diary. It's also a great way to wrap a gift for a book lover. Scarce in this condition." less
