Wherever possible it is our intention to preserve and retain as much of the original binding and its structure as possible.
Prior to starting any work we will discuss and agree with you the best approach and the work to be carried out. An estimate will be given of the costs involved. If during the work, it is determined that additional work may be required then we will agree this with you prior to carrying out this work.
If required we can also provide a photographic record of the binding both before and after the conservation has been carried out.
All materials used will be of Archival Quality and be in keeping with the original binding.
This leather bound ledger had suffered from being kept in damp conditions. The text block, as well as the binding had deteriorated causing the structure to fail.
The text block was cleaned, repaired and re-sewn. The text block was then re-cased into the original binding with repairs carried out to the binding with as much of the original leather retained.
Hard bound in buckram, to a colour of your choice. Gold lettering or leather title pieces as required on spine.
Record maintained of each year’s style to ensure that volumes will match year on year.
