Book Repair

We have lovingly restored family heirlooms, old bibles, collector’s editions and historical journals using the methods outlined below.

There are three typical cases depending on the state of the book:

Total repair – A sympathetic approach toward the original binding reusing as much of the existing materials as possible.

Re-backing – removing and replacing the book’s spine while retaining the original boards. Where possible, the existing spine will be remounted.

Re-binding – replacement of the original binding with a new cover using traditional methods and appropriate binding styles.

Materials used for the Repair Process:

  • Fine Cloth, Leather and Traditional Marbled Paper are use to make the cases.
  • Antique and Acid Free End-Papers are used to protect the text and maintain the look of the book.
  • Leather is treated to restore its lustre and preserve it well into the future.
