This workshop will orient students to the world of book repair. We will work with torn pages, ripped covers, and broken spines to rebuild damaged children’s books. Instead of making new covers to paper over the damage, we’ll respect the integrity of the original material to strengthen it for a new life of readability. In the process, we’ll get to work with the colorful images and text of historic children’s books. Think your damaged books are beyond repair? Think again, and learn how to make them readable with us.
