Sherlock Holmes in Leather

leather bound Sherlock Holmes

Something about Sherlock Holmes calls out for a leather binding, so when a client inquired about binding his set, I thought it would be a good idea to bind my copy as well. This is his, mine being a single, larger volume. The endpapers are made of maps of London featuring Baker Street. Reading these next to the fire on a rainy day feels rather Victorian, and I half expect a knock on the door by some fellow in a top hat and morning coat.
