tools for book repair

Book repair and conservation

I offer a repair service for books bound in paper or cloth, and make custom preservation boxes and wrappers for all books. Treatments range from a simple paper repair on a precious document, making a conservation phase box to protect a vulnerable book, or sympathetically re-binding a treasured family heirloom.

Wherever possible, I try to preserve as much of the original binding as I can, in order to retain the original character of the book. All work is carried out using the finest conservation-quality materials and adhesives, and traditional techniques.

Contact me to talk about the options and receive an estimate of the cost.

"Megan recently carried out conservation work on a rare first edition. I am very pleased with the book, especially the way in which Megan has been able to retain as much of the original cover as possible. it is wonderful to have the book back in our collection."
