Event description: 

One of the most common problems the book conservator encounters is detached boards and consequently there is a variety of methods of board attachment. This method was designed for use on tight back bindings where one or more of the boards are detached but the spine and sewing is intact. The method is relatively quick and provides a strong physical attachment without excessive interference with original material or the functionality of the bindingsThis one day workshop will start with a brief discussion of methods of board attachment, followed by a demonstration of Emma Fraser's method after which participants will be guided step-by-step through the process on examples that will be provided. Knowledge of book structures and book conservation techniques is recommended for this ‘hands on’ workshop.
