I have been a silent observer since Mar. and have learned a great deal about
book arts. Discussions have been interesting and at times very "hot"!
Thanks all for your contributions.
Now - my quest...
My sister received a wonderful fairie tale book with delightfully intricate
and full colour pictures, - oh only a few years ago... The book was read so
often that it has begun to fall apart. I am wondering if there is anyone
or if someone knows of someone in the Memphis or Nashville area who would be
interested in re-binding it.
Some of the particulars about the book is that it is hardcover, measures 13"
long x 9 3/4 wide x 1" deep. Sections of the book were sewn first and then
the spine glued (the original spine is now missing). I would guess that the
book was printed in the early 60's and I think european made. The lady who
gave it was from Germany.
Lastly, any idea of what this sort of repair would cost?
Looking forward to replies.
