Gorgeous and amazing quality. The prompts are perfect. I think it's reasonably priced for how beautiful and high end it looks!

Classic Heirloom

I stumbled upon Rag & Bone Bindery in search of a heirloom quality baby book. Big fan of supporting small businesses and glad I did. I'm recreating a baby book and photo album (due to original falling apart after 30 years) for my son who is expecting his first child. Baby book and Photo album were exactly what I was looking for: quality craftsmanship, design, and materials. Thanks!

This album is a wonderful addition as we prepare for our first child. While extremely detailed, it is not overly bulky or large and acts as a great guide for us new parents to be. Thank you for a lovely item.

The book is PERFECT! The mom-to-be LOVES it and I know little baby girl will love it for years to come, as well! Thanks so much!

Kean Barnett

Beautifully made and very sturdy! Came wrapped very nicely in a box with bubble wrap. Site says it ships within 7-10 business days and it was closer to the 10 days so would recommend ordering quicker shipping if needed quickly. Would purchase from again though! Great craftsmanship!! Also loved that it came with the stickers to attach photos.
