1882 Family Photo Album

A client brought me her family photo album in need of repair. It had sat on a shelf for a long time, and was subject to all environmental contaminants as well as that of pets.

It didn’t need to be rebound, but desperately needed cleaning, leather treatment, new endpapers and a new spine. The following are the before/after images, and a small video of some of the work.

Front cover, before/after
Back cover, before/after
Spine, before/after. Client didn’t want remains of old spine saved.
Fore edge, before/after
Original endpapers were made of paper to look like silk moire. I replaced them with actual silk moire.
