Book Rescue Service

Offering a book rescue service for tattered treasures in need of some TLC, Tamsin has experience and skills with paper, board and fabric to make useful book repairs. 

Specialising in helping books that have more sentimental and practical value than monetary value. Tamsin enjoys getting to know distressed books and finding practical solutions to help restore them to a stable and useable condition. If you have a damaged or worn-out book that means a lot to you and you would like to be able to enjoy it again, please feel welcome to get in touch. 

PLEASE NOTE I am not currently taking new commissions for repairs as I have a six-month waiting list.




For conservation work and restoration of antiquarian and leather-bound books please consider contacting one of these specialists. Shepherds Frome Conservation Bookbinders
