Acclaim Press' flagship line features collectible, hardbound, "coffee-table" books, with luxurious, deeply grained leather covers artistically embellished in gold or silver foil, printed on acid-free, high-gloss enameled photo paper for excellent photo reproduction and durability. Old-world craftsmanship, including smyth-sewn binding, insures that these books become treasured keepsakes that are passed down from generation to generation.
