We offer a variety of services to care for your books.
Here are some examples of repairs.
◆ Re-sewing: When the signatures (folded pages) of a book have damage to the sewing.
◆ Re-backing: When the adhesive along the spine has worn away. We Re-glue and adhere layers of strong Japanese paper to the spine.
◆ Recovering: When the cover of a book has been damaged or is missing. We have a variety of cloth and paper to choose from.
◆ 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.
◆ Paperback Repair: When the adhesive of a paperback book has worn away and pages are falling apart, we apply new adhesive to the spine.
◆ Custom Boxmaking: Sometimes, 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.
Prices depend on complexity of repair and include consultation, time, and materials.
