Re: [BKARTS] Basic Book Repair Supplies



Might add to Godsey's message that her little book, "Unbound" give excellent
basic-beginner advice. There are also useful videos on her sicpress site.
Between the demos, the booklet, and the materials she offers, she has given
many, many used booksellers the confidence, skills, and tools to make minor
repairs (and to know when to call in a conservator).
