RESTORATION OF A POCKET BIBLE WITH PAINT ON COVER
Spine view shows the joints are solid apart from some wear to the head and tail of the spine. Below is a gallery of the restored product. We used a blend of special chemicals to remove the paint, re-dyed the scuffed areas and finished the surface with a micro-crystalline beeswax. The slightly degraded head and tail spine areas were strengthened with a thin black cloth. Overall the main leather cover joints were in very good condition so were left alone, but the inside paper joints were replaced with matching black archival paper.
