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. If this is not possible, I can rebind in a style sympathetic to the book, using appropriate materials. All work is carried out using the finest conservation-quality materials and adhesives, and traditional techniques.
