This two day hands-on workshop will provide an introduction to
conservation book repair methods and their applications. Each
participant will learn how to do a rebacking, a repair method in
which the original covers of the book are retained, as well as a
complete rebinding. Other simple repairs including cleaning methods,
paper repairs, and tip-ins will be covered. Bookbinding supplies and
equipment will also be discussed.   The course is limited to 8
