Lili's Book Binding Blog- The Craft of Book Rehabilitation

I remember my visit to The Huntington Library. One of the most memorable parts of the visit was the book restoration area. It was a combination of technology, history and respect for the material to be restored.'s Bookbinder Blog is an opportunity to get a better understanding of the process of restoring a book. Some of the technology is centuries old and some of it is new but the purpose is to make the book aesthetically and functionally whole.

On the blog Lili really does go into the process of how she restores and rehabilitates books and antiquities. There are lots of photographs and clear explanations of the craft. This is a lot more detailed than what we learned to do in our technical services classes.

I hope you will take time to visit and get inspired.
