(1 review)

Save Your Books’ Book Repair Guidelines

These are book repair guidelines rather than rules. While this looks like a list to follow, not every book will need every point applied. Each book needs to be examined separately and what you choose to do from this list may change for each repair. The following guidelines are a sort of hierarchy to consider for each book.

  • No Video
  • PERPETUAL CAVEAT: Never repair rare and/or scarce books. When in doubt only do preservation treatments and consult an accredited professional.
  • Click the “Curriculum” Tab to get to the Lesson
