This second half of the restoration core course will focus on leather bindings of the 18th, 19th and 20th century, the deterioration problems they develop, and the various techniques currently used to repair them. Participants should bring a cloth-bound and leather-bound example to work on.
This is one of the core courses required for the CBBAG Certificate.
