Product Description

Leather Book Care is easy with this archival kit.

This kit provides you everything you need to practice leather book care without investing in larger quantities. Preserve your books and make them look great on your shelves. You can polish your leather books with the best archival leather dressing around: Hewit's Leather Dressing is easy to apply and is approved by book conservators. After applying the Hewit's and letting it dry then you would use the buffing brush. Slowly at first and then a bit more firmly. You do have to be careful not to brush off any loose pieces. You can also consolidate abraded, powdery leather and protect broken or scratched leather with the Klucel-G and even use the SC6000 for a further coat of protection to really bad areas. SC6000 is another sort of wax. The SC actually stands for Shoe Cream but don't be fooled into using other shoe care products. They are not all safe for use on books.

This video shows how easy it is to apply Klucel-G. Be sure to watch the Member's Only video that shows an exception to using Klucel-G on light colored calf. Klucel-G is a very mild adhesive so avoid getting it on the page edges. It is made of hydroxypropylcellulose mixed into 99% isopropyl alcohol.

This kit can only be shipped via Ground Transportation because of the Klucel-G.
