The Restoration Of Leather BindingsBook - 1984
The premise of The Restoration of Leather Bindings (first edition, 1972) is that restoration of old and worn bookbindings is more than a technical skill. Rather, it is a specialized craft that calls for an understanding of historical methods, specific technical terms, and aesthetic styles in order to be developed fully. This second edition continues from this premise and acts as an extensive instruction manual for those who practice or wish to practice leather bookbinding restoration.
