This paperback is very interesting, but I find it
will never replace a hardcover book

- it makes a very poor doorstop.

Repair, Restoration and Conservation




After my original studies into book construction and design I felt that with my knowledge of book structures and binding techniques, conservation and restoration was a natural progression. Since completing my MA in Book and Paper Conservation at Camberwell in London I have been deeply involved in the field of conserving and preserving our precious and extensive book heritage.


I am always keen to be engaged in the hands-on experience of working directly with books or documents, as well as being available in a consultative capacity when advice or information is required. I can provide detailed assistance with particular books or environments, or guidance of a general nature about care, storage or library maintenance.


As a qualified and experienced book and paper Conservator I can maintain, repair and restore individual books or complete libraries as required.

I also offer a consultation service tendering advice and information to help you to conserve your collections. Please contact me with your enquiry and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
