Southern Book & Paper Conservation, LLC
1602 Geneva Bible
United States Compendium, 1890s
This book required sections to be rebuilt and resewn
This Bible was an heirloom that needed a new cover.
I inset the original cover which was embossed with her mother's name.
Manuscript, early 1800s
One of the most challenging aspects of modern conservation is the removal of pressure sensitive tape.
First the plastic carrier is removed, then the adhesive itself.
I repair loved heirloom books - including Bibles, cookbooks, and vintage children's books.
I also provide conservation treatment services for museums and special collections/archives, including appropriate written and photo documentation.
Please reach out with any questions you have. I love chatting about book and paper treasures!
