You might need to put detergent directly on stain and rub it, rinse it, rub it, rinse, till most of it is gone.

Maybe make a book sleeve for it?

most leather is dyed, that dye can be hard to move once it has transferred…I spent a week in the 90’s with green feet

There is a small chance that the dye can be removed with alcohol if washing didn’t do the trick
Plain hand sanitizer works best for this
Dab it on, wait a few seconds and dab it off with clean towels or paper towels
This is how you remove hair color drips as well (but not from hair, that is a whole other process)
