Description About the Author Contents
In VOLUME V of the Bookbinders Workshop Instructional Series, Master Bookbinder Michael Chrisman demonstrates the complete and historically correct re-backing and restoration of an early 18th century book, London 1728. The project begins with the cover boards detached; paste-downs that had floated off over time (but still present); loose leather turn-ins; a broken end-band; and so on. Mr. Chrisman transforms this once lifeless book into a beautifully restored tome that has the look and feel of a superbly preserved original binding. Every aspect of the work is fully demonstrated, performed, and explained in detail on camera. This video, in two discs, runs approximately 2 hours 51 minutes.
