Thank you for your interest in conserving or restoring your books and works on paper. I am currently on maternity leave, but will be returning to the bindery in mid May. If you would like to submit an estimate request, I will be happy to be back in touch with you this spring to further discuss your project.
Each repair, or new binding, is highly customized to the client's desires and the object's needs. Materials, details, and size all contribute to the length and cost of each project.
Pricing begins at $125.00, and increases at an additional rate of $45.00 an hour. Initial pricing covers most basic book repairs, and includes supplemental consultations and requisite materials (adhesives, tissues, linen, paper etc).
Additional materials will be charged at manufacturer's cost (leather, book cloth, marbled paper, large paper and board orders etc).
Discounts for book dealers and volume orders are available. For a custom estimate, please see below.
To receive a written treatment proposal and estimate, please fill out the form below. Or, you may send a few photos to 603.986.6793 or MariannaBrotherton@gmail.com. Treatments and estimates can be discussed by email or over the phone, but images will be needed for an accurate assessment. Consultations in-house are by appointment only, and are available during business hours and most nights and weekends.
Shipping & Handling
Books in need of repair can be shipped directly to the bindery. It is advised that the book be placed in a sealed zip lock bag, bubble wrapped, packaged in a tight fitting box, and insured. USPS Media Mail is a very economical and reliable option for domestic shipments. Finished written and photographic treatment reports can be made available upon request, at no additional charge.
