A Christogram (Latin Monogramma Christi) is a monogram or combination of letters that forms an abbreviation for the name of Jesus Christ, traditionally used as a religious symbol within the Christian Church. One of the oldest Christograms is the Chi-Rho. It is formed by superimposing the first two (capital) letters chi and rho (ΧΡ) of the Greek word for Christ “ΧΡΙΣΤΟΣ” in such a way to produce the monogram.
The Chi Rho is the theme for this personalized leather religious scrapbook.
This Chi Rho Symbol has been raised from the surface of the handbound leather book and covered with suede burgundy leather. The scrapbook features a name carved and embossed on a purple leather accent strip. Copper sheeting caps the Chi Rho monogram. Metallic gold leather frames the Chi Rho, edged with copper wire as both extra decor and protection of the leather edges.
The headbands, stitched directly into the spine edges, are comprised of leather cords wrapped with red and purple threads. The Chi Rho Scrapbook’s cover hinges are reinforced with 55 lb tensile strength fabric, both under the leather and under the coversheets, to ensure heirloom strength and quality.
Pages are individually handripped to create a curved descending deckled edge. Archival, acid-free, and permanently flexible glue has been used.
