[BKARTS] request for info, regarding restoration

hi, i am teaching a basic creative bookbinding class this month thru
the community school program. The first session was last night. Two of
my students ( an older married couple ) signed up thinking the class
would be on restorative work ( how they got that impression i'm not
quite sure) and at first were disapointed but then they got into the
swing of it and are looking forward to the rest of the classes ( yay)
anyway they mentioned they have some old books they need rebound, and
thought this class would teach them how to do it. I've not seen the
books, though i'll ask if they can bring one to a future class.   i was
wondering if anyone knows of any reputable people in the SF Bay area
who do this type of work  or someone who could appraise or evaluate
their books and let them know if the books are more valuble left alone
or if they should be rebound. I get the impression it's more of a
sentimental thing rather than books of monetary value.    Short of
that, should they actually wish to follow thru with doing it themselves
are there any particular books i should point them in the direction of?

Thank you so much for any help you can give.
