Do you have books that are in need of repair?
We offer a variety of services to help make your books usable and more stable.
Here are examples of repairs and starting prices for small books*:
◆ Re-sewing: When the signatures (folded pages) of a book have damage to the sewing. $50.
◆ Re-backing: When the adhesive along the spine has worn away. We Re-glue and adhere layers of strong Japanese paper to the spine. $50.
◆ Recovering: When the cover of a book has been damaged or is missing. We have a variety of cloth and paper to choose from. $75
◆ Page Repair: When pages of the book are torn or have fallen apart, we use small pieces of Japanese paper to adhere them back together. $50
◆ Paperback Repair: When the adhesive of a paperback book has worn away and pages are falling apart, we apply new adhesive to the spine. $50
◆ Custom Boxmaking: Unfortunately some books are too delicate to repair. In this case, we can create a custom handmade box to hold the book together.
◆ Spine Replacement: When just the spine of a hardcover book is damaged, we replace the spine and cover it with new cloth. $50.
