In 1984 I began restoring books at institutional special collections, spending several years at the University of Saint Thomas, at Carleton College and Saint Olaf College in Northfield MN. I now am in private practice, and work in my home studio workshop.
Most of my work is leather and cloth book repair and restoration. Many types of books and objects find their way into my workshop. Boxmaking is a specialty area of the work.
Leather and cloth bound antiquarian books of all sorts
