book restoration at The Center for Book Arts

There is still space left in Sarah Dillon's Book Restoration next week at
The Center for Book Arts, which will run from Monday to Friday, February
21-25, 10 am to 4pm.

The course will concentrate mainly on the common practice of re-backing
cloth volumes. Paper repair, resewing of loose sections, dry cleaning, and
the treatment of spines and endpapers will also be discussed. Participants
should bring at least two cloth-covered books to the first session--one with
the spine of the case loose or split, and one with the endpaper joints split
and/or broken.

Bookbinding One and the ability to make a case with confidence are
prerequisites. Bookbinding Two is strongly recommended.

Tuition for this course is $375 or $350 if you are a member of the Center.

Registration is accepted by phone or fax (and one day soon, from our
