damaged book.jpg

I’m one of those people who has mixed feelings when I see altered books (and chairs made of books!) – I love the creativity, but I hate seeing books full of information destroyed. If you have a book you’ve found at a yard sale that you want to fix up, or a favorite book that you’ve read to pieces, I found this great online book repair manual.

If the binding is beyond repair, here’s a tutorial for binding photocopies. And here’s how to dry wet books. And SicPress, a nifty online shop for book repair and cleaning supplies.
