Re: [BKARTS] health concerns in binding



Probably the main item of concern when restoring books is mold.

Some people are sensitive to mold, others are not; some mold is
dangerous.

If a damp/wet & moldy book comes into the lab/studio and you don't
know how to deal with it, bag it and freeze it until it can be
delivered to someone who does know how to handle it safely.
