Bookbinding has been restoring and conserving
antique books for decades.
The art of book restoration has been
practiced for centuries. Our craftmen have been expertly
trained to carefully handle rare and precious books.
Bringing treasured books back to life, while preserving
the integrity and design that the original bookmaker
had intended, is an art we practice daily.
We are capable of delicately handling
and restoring torn pages, or rebinding a well-loved
book by expertly hand sewing the pages together again.
Clients may choose to simply recover an old bible, family
album, or treasured book using new leather or cloth
material. Or, we can re-gild a worn cover, or repair
a torn leather, paper, or cloth cover, perserving as
much of the original as possible.
We can also restore many other antique
items such as leather bags, frames, watchbands, wallets,
and most other antique leather articles.
Take a look at the incredible transformation
we achieved with these books:
We are experts in debossing or stamping to create the engraved look you see on the family bible below. While we do not do embossing, which is a "raised" effect, we do what is called debossing, which means to press deep into the leather.
