We love to dress up or protect those things that are dear to us like iPhones, dogs, cats, golf clubs, even ourselves! So it just makes sense we would want to cover up our leather bibles to protect them and keep them looking stylish.
Keep these helpful tips in mind when you’re looking for that special cover for your bible. Picking a cover that fits your style may mean you need to take care of your bible differently. For instance, if you chose to use a cloth or fabric cover that is more breathable, keeping your bible covered up for extended periods of time is fine. But if you live in a humid or rainy climate, it may affect the leather cover and the pages adversely. You may prefer to go with a leather cover. With a leather cover, it’s good to let it breath from time to time. Taking it out of the cover will extend the life of the bible by giving it time to breathe.
One thing is for sure – you need to pick a cover that fits loosely on your bible. The majority of people try to stuff everything church or bible related into their bible if it’s in a cover. It becomes more like a purse than a bible cover. The loose cover will help give you extra space to place church bulletins, study notes, etc. inside with the bible. But the other reason to have a loose-fitting cover is to protect the spine of the bible. A cover that fits too tightly will put stress on the spine of the bible and cause it to break down faster over time. Plus, by putting undue stress on the cover, it causes the cover to break away from the actual pages of the bible.
If chosen correctly, bible covers can enhance the lifespan and attractiveness of your leather bible. Choose wisely! The Discount Bible Guys
