In 1984 I began restoring books professionally at institutional special collections, spending several years at the University of Saint Thomas, at Carleton College and Saint Olaf College in Northfield MN. I am now in private practice, working in my home studio workshop.
I specialize in leather and cloth binding repair and restoration, and work as well on a very wide variety of books and other objects that come into the workshop. Boxmaking is another specialty area of my work.
Leather and cloth bound antiquarian books of all sorts
