Restorations
 
  Sympathetic and sound book restorations are achieved using only high standard archival, conservation and durable materials. The restoration of books using only traditional hand skills in craft binding methods are utilised whilst retaining as much as possible of the original binding materials. The survival and longevity of a binding restoration is a paramount consideration. There is no compromise on quality.
There are no two books which are the same and pose the same solution in repairs so each book is considered on its own. Great care and pride is taken to ensure that future generations will enjoy these books.
Examples of some books that have been previously restored are: Family Bibles, Family Histories, Hymnals, Antique books.
