Monastic Diurnal Cover

Monastic Diurnal Cover

This cover was designed for the Monastic Diurnal or the Day Hours of the Monastic Breviary published by St. Michael's Abbey Press. 


The leather has been stamped with a custom-made brass stamp, leaving a very detailed impression of the Benedictine Medal. This is one of the very unique properties of vegetable tanned leather which yields a simple yet detailed cover design. The zipper is made of brass and polyester and is the highest end zipper on the market. Our zippered covers are stitched with Z277 bonded nylon thread. This guarantees a long-lasting and durable stitch. We also use a hand powered stitching machine which allows us to produce consistent and quality products.

The leather is vegetable tanned and dyed using a black Italian water stain.

If you would like to a cover made in a different design for your Monastic Diurnal, please let us know. If you have any questions, or would like to commission a custom cover for another prayer book, please contact us.

**Please note: Because of the many steps it takes to make this high quality of a cover, and as this is not my full-time job, it may take up to 4 weeks to fulfill your order. If you are needing to rush an order, please contact us, and we will see what we can do.**
