In 1984 I began restoring books in institutional special collections, first spending several years at the University of Saint Thomas, moving on to Carleton, and Saint Olaf Colleges in Northfield MN. Now I am in private practice, working in a home studio workshop.
Most of my work is leather and cloth book repair and restoration. But many types of books and objects find their way into my workshop. Boxmaking is one of the side specialty areas I enjoy.
Leather and cloth bound antiquarian books of all sorts
