The Delmas Bindery was founded in 1988 in Dublin, designed by the
Irish architect, Arthur Gibney. It is a busy commercial
conservation studio with three conservators who carry out work for a
number of national Irish institutions and for private individuals.
Conservation work undertaken includes: prints; soft-media drawings;
architectural drawings; watercolours; maps; sketchbooks;
manuscripts; printed volumes; archaeological studies; guard books;
various archival material; and illuminated works on vellum.

Two-year contract, open to either:

        Candidates should hold a recognised qualification in book
        conservation or relevant practical experience and be able to
        work without close supervision. Salary IRP13,500 to
        IRP15,000, depending on experience.


    Recent graduate in book conservation who is seeking further
    training. Salary IRP12,000.
