BOOK AND PAPER CONSERVATION

The Book Hut offers services in book and paper conservation. Every book has a value, whether it is a rare or antique book of high monetary value, or a children’s book that has been loved for many years. By taking a route of repair and conservation, you will be able to retain the ethical history of a book that is held in its original binding, and keep the nostalgic aspects of a book that may have been with you all of your life.

I can suggest a variety of treatments and quotes for your book or artwork, including working to a specific budget if required and varied degrees of repair. This may range from a small amount of rehousing to fully rebinding a deteriorated volume.
