Mount a small object in front cover of hardback book? Please/

How can I insert a small mirror or peephole into the front cover of a handmade hardcover book? What kind of material is appropriate for the cover? Will cardboard/cloth do? What about leather? Is there a tutorial anywhere to show how this is done?

Hi all -
I'd like to make a short blank book as a Christmas gift. I know how to cut/sew/glue the signatures and assemble a basic hardcover. I don't know how to...
1) ...use leather, rather than cloth/paper, to wrap the front and back covers;
2) ...insert into the front cover a small mirror, gear, or (ideally) fisheye peephole. I wanna make this book not only by hand but awesome.
3) THERE IS NO THREE.
OK, craft MeFites: help me, help me, help me please!!! Thanks lovers.
