Stephanie Gibbs, a bookbinder in Los Angeles, CA, offers edition and fine binding, book conservation, custom boxes, and paper repair for contemporary and historic books, manuscripts, and documents to clients throughout California.

leather book repair

Leather bindings in goatskin, calfskin, and sheepskin often experience broken hinges, red rot, and decay from sunlight, use, and age. These books can be repaired and conserved with contemporary leathers sourced from the United Kingdom, or with Japanese papers dyed to match the leather.           

Conservation of historic volumes includes printed, manuscript, and bound items in leather, vellum, cloth, and paper, from the 16th century to today, including maps and letters. These treatments restore historic texts to fine condition, using archival materials and sensitive and professional evaluation.
