Seeking a leather notebook cover to enclose a 3x5 wirebound notebook

Where can I find a good leather notebook cover that will enclose a mead 3 x 5 wirebound notebook (top or side bound) ?

I've found one source of leather covers for use by police, and some really cool blank book kits, but can't find any good covers that use a generic little notebook as filler. Is this an evil conspiracy by the stationary illuminati?

here's a nice one on ebay. Maybe they have more?

That's the exact same one available elsewhere. I think I've discovered a market opportunity.

I'll probably buy the spendy one from volcano arts, then use the tools to make myself a cheaper knockoff. If I use a multi-hole leather punch I can lace the edges. The goal, however, is to not look like anything offered by Tandy Leather (shudder).

sounds like a plan (sorry we couldn't help)

I don't think it's an answerable question, or my search terms are too restricted. There's just not a demand, I suppose.

it is a really small size--maybe most people who use 3X5 notebooks don't care about covering them (given that they cost only 79 cents or less), except for cops?

That's a good point. It's just that when I put the naked notebook in my pocket it gets trashed in a few days, while it takes me about a month to fill one up.

here is a link to Volcano Book Arts in case anyone googles this thread in the future. A small brass and leather cover would look cool.

This notebook cover is pictured with a wirebound notebook, maybe it is what you were looking for.
