Book Conservation

I am in Private Practice, and operate a New York City based conservation studio. I work on all types of books: from Grandma’s Cookbook to a Gutenberg Bible.I provide a wide variety of treatment and consultation services for institutions and private collectors designed to preserve the historic, artistic and artifactual value of books, paper and vellum.  In order to estimate the cost of a treatment, I need to examine the item in person.  Please contact me if you have questions about how to proceed depending on where you are located.

All treatments are preformed in accordance with the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (AIC) Code of Ethics.

There are some highlights of various treatments in the sidebar, not really treatment reports, but an informal tour through the treatment. Depending on the types of problems your book has, I can likely supply before and after images of something similar.
