Price Guidelines
The cost of any of the books is governed by four main factors:
1) Pre-print. This includes editing the text, setting dropped capitals and other typeface alterations
    -and also the preparation of illustrations

2) Printing costs. This obviously depends on the size of the book -but also includes the quality of the paper used

3) Sewing the book block. This is done by hand, and is very time consuming.

4) The actual binding. Bindings using wooden boards are more expensive than limp bound, as is an elaborate binding using high quality leather

If you can notify us a month or so in advance, then we can prepare two or three versions for you to choose from.
