Bookbinders ~ ~

Recent findings have shown that dilapidated items within the book trade increase in value with the correct form of restoration that can only be executed by a Master Craftsman.

Restoring a book that has been eaten by worms, chewed by dogs, run over by a carriage, stained by Georgian ink, repaired by a carpet tape fanatic, found in Medieval ruins, exposed to the elements in a 400 year old roof space, burnt to a cinder and drownded in a flooded crypt is not an easy task or a cheap one, but careful restoration will certainly increase the value of your books and repay your investment many times over.
