Book Repair Kit

This kit is designed to accomplish some of the most obvious book repair problems with archival solutions. The goal is to avoid damaging the value of your books. When you receive the kit there are instructions to get your one free month of Save Your Books membership. With the membership you get access to more in-depth videos showing how to do the repairs you want to do.

The free videos on the YouTube channel called Save Your Books will show you lots of things to do as well.

This book repair kit was developed so that it doesn't overlap much with the other kits. Buying all three book care and repair kits will set you up to do the majority of simple repairs. There are still some tools and materials from home that you will need to supplement this. For instance, if you don't have a book press: Here is the video to show you how to make the simplest one there is. Just go to the hardware store and buy two bricks and two clamps and some packing tape.

Contents: Book Repair Knife, 320 and 100 Grit Sandpaper, Brush for Glue (glue not included), Bone Folder, Binder clip, Corner pressing boards, Sekishu Tissue, Colored Japanese Papers: (Black and Brown), Wax Paper, Mull, Hinging rods, Muslin

One thing I did not include in this kit is any adhesive. What you need mainly is some archival PVA. This is something that is sold separately here. I didn't include it for two reasons. The first is that most people I asked already had some at home so it seemed unnecessary and secondly, when PVA freezes it goes bad and so you have to ship it carefully and that would make shipping the kit even more expensive.
