Where do you to start with your collection of books that need some repair? With this course we will begin with the basics. Learning about the materials and adhesives used in repair and some simple techniques such as cleaning paper and cloth, tear mends, end sheet repair and replacement, reattaching loose or torn out pages and repairs to corner and spines. Students will learn minor repairs and recognize their limits. Bring three books in need of repair to the first class (no leather).
