Pictures from the Studio
Many Techniques are used to restore old books and documents to their former glory. As shown in this example, papers are sometimes soaked in de-ionized water to remove wrinkles, stains, and old glue.
Examples of Modern Bindings
Modern Bindings are created at the studio by Richard Baker and his students. At far left is the "Redi Kilowatt" binding by Caroline "Zoom" Huth, a paper overlay with neon endsheets. The example at near left, by Betsy Ruppa, is constructed of plexiglas mirrors with Lucite rods and frosted mylar pages.
