This conservation measure has evolved into an art and is an integral part of the history of the book. Most of the damage suffered by bindings are due to use and physical wear of the different functional parts of the book.
Using our knowledge of traditional binding techniques, we recover the book’s functionality: we ensure that it opens correctly, we reintegrate and reinforce the spine, the edges and corners of the binding and we reconstruct the book caps and headbands with leather, paper and thread while conserving and ensuring maximum use of all the original parts of the book.
