Introduction to Book Conservation

This course introduces students to techniques for the repair of 19th and 20th century cloth case bindings. Bench work focuses on producing aesthetically pleasing repairs that preserve as much of the original book as possible. The course covers: basic paper conservation, disbinding and re-sewing a text block, making new inner hinges, tools and techniques for lifting, and re-backing cloth bindings.
