Book Repair

I have collected old books for years, and the affordable ones usually have problems. I took a bookbinding class in order 

to learn to repair all my spineless wonders, and am now able to make tight, readable bindings for my collection. 

ONE

This book on millinery was originally pamphlets sloppily held together by wires. Now sewn and stitched, they are unified as a book with a new cover.




Sometimes, the best treatment is to rebind.








TWO

This facsimile of an old cookbook had a falling apart cover but the stamping was too pretty to lose. I was able to countersink the best part of it into the new cover when rebinding it.




A new flyleaf of hand marbled paper completes the illusion of an old book.


 I am willing to barter.
