I would make the rivets myself from brass rod stock. I buy mine at the
local hobby store. You would make the head on one end of each rivet,
drill the hole through the plaque and the book cover, and insert the
rivet. Then cut the plain end off slightly above the surface of the book
cover and form the outside head.
