Some years ago, I developed a website dedicated to explaining techniques surrounding the repair of old, loved and generally precious books.
The step by step instructions on the website are based on the extensive practical work of Artemis BonaDea, an industry renowned preservation repair expert and librarian from Alaska.
My own experience in this area comes from many years conducting a mobile repair service – The Book Ambulance.
On the site you will find over 100 pages including:
- Step by step instructions for simple to complex repairs to paperback and hard cover books;
- Tips for storing books, manuscripts, maps and posters;
- Some personally recommended book repair resources.
