Along with the pages we repair in the books we restore Bookends Bindery can also offer a paper conservation service for documents, maps and prints.
If you have a damaged document, print or map contact us and we can discuss the option and what we can do to the item to revive it.
Our workshop is rooted in the craft skills, but employing modern methods we can clean and restore most papers we are given. We undertake de-acidification as well as repair work using both modern and traditional techniques.
We use a range of techniques to clean paper and repair tears. When replacing missing parts we use both western and Japanese paper depending on the age of the item. All glue used is acid free and can be reversed.
We are happy to set up a meeting for one of our trained staff to visit you and assess the work needed.
Any work undertaken will be collected and delivered by a member of our team.
All work undertaken is fully insured and is kept in fire proof safes.
Great care is taken when handling all work within the bindery and the completed projects are also covered whilst in transit.
We offer book restoration in London and the south East but are happy to discuss the assessment of potential work nationwide.
