Watch Book Restoration LIVE! tomorrow April 19th!

Date and Description

Watch Book Restoration Live! April 19th from 3-4 on my Facebook page called Save Your Books. I am certain that for many of you this is like an invitation to watch paint dry, but for those few who maybe have a book repair question, this is your chance to ask it and even see it answered in action. I will be working on this old christmas book ( in the photo)  but the principles will apply to lots of books. There will be some page repair, removal of marks, and eventually re-casing. I have over 25 years of experience restoring books (and a book conservation diploma from the AAB) and now I am sharing what I know. All of the methods will be archival and conservation oriented. Typically I am orienting my education to amateurs and those with no tools. This may be a little different but I will try to mention simpler alternatives if I use anything fancy. I hope to see you all there! ~Sophia P.S. Don't forget I will be at the Rose City Book & Paper Fair. Bring your books and questions there too.

Ballard Books

(Caveat: we are just in the process of opening the store up, but will hopefully be open July of 2023) Located in the hip, historic Ballard district of Seattle, our location is has had a bookstore in it since the 1940's. We are proud to carry on that tradition. In our Antiquarian bookstore the inventory is weighted heavily to books from before 1900 but newer books are also part of the program. I've been living in the world of old books for over 40 years and what is for sale in our store reflects what I have found interesting or simply couldn't resist hauling home from one of countless trips I have been on in my life....
