Speculations: What Crafting Profession Will Make Tomes?

    We've been informed that most of us Clerics will be weilding some kind of 1H weapon and a tome.  I'm trying to use my imagination and see which profession would be best paired with making 'Spellbooks'.  

    I'm thinking a well versed Leatherworker would be able to make a variety of bindings / blank books.  The Leatherworker's skill will determine variables like weight and number of pages, as well as general durability.

    What are your thoughts?  Do you think there will be a specific Scribe type profession or will this be a subset of something like Leatherworking?  Do you think tomes should even be allowed to be crafted or should they just be world drops or quest items?

    *edit - I didn't realize there was already a Scribe profession.  Instead of my question above, which specialization of Scribe would tome crafting be in; Researcher or Engraver?

    Scribe is one of the listed professions for the game so I imagine they would come from there if any of the tradeskills make them, and it could definitely involve materials from leatherworkers and later on maybe blacksmiths too for iron-bound tomes.

    I must be blind as a bat! , where did you find an up to date listing of professions?

    Updated my post above.
