Book Conservation Services

At Kuro's Workshop, we also provide conservation and preservation services for books and select paper documents. We offer services to owners of cherished family bibles, to those who own well-loved (and well-worn) books that have been passed down, and to passionate book collectors who would like their collection cared for. We use archival materials and treatment methods that allow your precious items to continue to be used for generations to come.

Some of the services we offer:

  • cleaning
  • spine repair
  • rebinds (either using the same book cover or making a new one)
  • paper mending
  • housing of loose documents
  • housing for special items
  • special binding projects (ie. personalized wedding albums, books/journals made to order, etc.)
  • consultation for collections

If you have a book or papers in need of care, set up a free consultation to see if we can help, or if you have a question about the services we offer, please contact us.
