I have more than 10K hours in conservation, restoration and period rebinding of books. During my career, I learned that every project is a different project in bookbinding and conservation, and that is why I decided not to present a fixed pricing table. I will be happy to work with you and personalize a custom quote according to your specific needs and budget.
Here is a summary of the services I currently offer:
- Construction/Restoration of full and half leather bindings, with blind and gold tooling on spine and boards.
- Construction of clamshells, pamphlet binders, cloth case bindings, paper case bindings, and post-binders for use in encapsulation.
- A variety of treatments to stabilize, conserve, restore, and protect antique document and book materials.Treatments include: paper repair using heat-set tissue, solvent set tissue or long fiber Japanese paper tissue and paste, aqueous and non-aqueous deacidification, removal of adhesives and tapes mechanically and with solvents, multiple sewing techniques to repair textblocks, and hand-sewn endbands.
