BOOKBINDING DVD SERIES - RESTORING THE FAMILY BIBLE DVD
In this DVD, master bookbinder Peter Goodwin shows in detail how he restores a much loved Victorian family bible.
Many families have one of these precious books. No matter how hard they try to care for them, the bibles still seem to fall to bits. Sticky tape does not help! What you need is a bookbinder with the skill and knowledge to carry out what seems an impossible task.
Just what does it take to restore such a bible? How long does it take? How does the binder do it? How is a bible put together?
In this DVD Peter Goodwin shows how it is done. He explains why the bible falls to pieces in the first place, strips it down to thousands of pages and proceeds to put it together again in front of your eyes.
The secrets under the cover of the family bible are revealed for the world to see and you can marvel at the skill of the bookbinder as he restores it to its original glory.
Filmed by TV producer Janette Heffernan in the bindery.
