Learning Book Repair

I grew up in Rochester, New York to two wonderful parents who are both librarians. My dad more specifically focuses on being an archivist and historian for the city of Rochester. In his line of work he comes across many books in pretty rough shape where the pages have deteriorated and separated from the binding. My parents recently visited my husband and I at our home in Chicago and my dad gave me a workshop on how to repair book binding in his line of work. He brought me a an old broken copy of the "Wizard of Oz" to work on. 

My dad brought an old copy of the "Wizard of Oz" for us to repair the binding together.
