Intermediate Book Repair, October 30-31, Dallas, TX You’ve taken Basic Book Repair, used the techniques at your library, and now it’s time for more training. Join Rebecca Elder at our Intermediate Book Repair workshop at SMU and develop your expertise with advanced techniques such as complex paper repair, spine replacement, corner repair, enclosures, sewing in loose signatures, and recasing a book in its original cover. You will also review and discuss decision-making, workflow, how to set up a repair unit, and how to identify items requiring the expertise of a conservator. Contact for more information.
