Re: [BKARTS] Basic Book Repair Supplies

Re:gettting skills:

if you're near a college or university, you can get basic skills in
their preservation/conservation dept.  Your email address looks like
you're in Texas, where there are some great places to work with books,
like UT Austin, Texas A&M, among others.  I don't know what SMU does
in that arena, but for the Dallas area it's a possibility as are other
schools.  In my experience, many if not most colleges and universities
have an in-house basic repair program, as do many public libraries.

A man who is 'ill-adjusted' to the world is always on the verge of
finding himself. One who is adjusted to the world never finds himself,
but gets to be a cabinet minister.  --Hermann Hesse, novelist, poet,
Nobel laureate (1877-1962)

There is wisdom in turning as often as possible from the familiar to
the unfamiliar: it keeps the mind nimble, it kills prejudice, and it
fosters humor. -George Santayana, philosopher (1863-1952)
