1882 Family Photo Album

February 5, 2018

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.

Aging is mostly the failure to repair.
