Locating a Conservator

Dear Donia,
Can you recommend someone to repair the spine and cover of my old family Bible?

Repairing spines and covers

Q. Dear Donia,

We have a very old family Bible that needs spine and cover work. Can you suggest a reputable person to do this work? Thanks, Patrick

A. Dear Patrick,

The best way to find a reputable conservator in your area is to consult the American Institute for Conservation's "Find a Conservator" page. Simply put in your zip code and select a specialty (in this instance you would pick "Book in Paper").  If you have never worked with a conservator before, be sure to read the information that AIC supplies as it will make for a better experience all around. I hope you are able to find someone!
