Studio 42 Designs was started in 2011 by Alan Klem as a way to make extra money in his spare time. He wanted to make a nice cover for his favorite book, the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. After completing the first, he decided to use the new skills to improve and make a better design and sold the first incarnation to fund it. In the process more people started asking for other books with similar covers.
Over the years the number of books we make covers for has expanded to well over 50 unique designs. Ranging from fantasy, science-fiction, and even gaming rule book covers. And along the way we have added dice trays, sketch and notebook covers, as well as buttons, pins, magnets, and other devices. All made from laser engraved and hand stained and assembled leather.
