One thought on “Workshop Announcement: Basic Book Repair

  1. I have some books that are 100 years old and some a little older than that. The ones in the worse condition are a collection of old Charles Dickens that are in bad shape that I bought at a yard sale. It breaks my heart to see them in this shape. Can someone please give me contact information on someone that might be interested in restoring them or my other old books?
