I also thoroughly enjoyed the supply list. Now I have all the tools, and it's just a matter of experience with the techniques. Book repair, in my opinion, is fun. This book spells it all out. And gets you going. I'll use this book a lot for repairing my personal library. Great and easy to understand.
Book Repair for Booksellers: A guide for booksellers offering practical advice on book repair has paid for itself time and again.
The author also maintains a website where videos of repair techniques may be viewed, and repair supplies purchased at reasonable cost.
The book suffers from too few diagrams explaining the repairs and too many undefined words. I know the author must know what these terms mean, but the author should explain them to us. Otherwise, it's time to Google the word so not all is lost.
I did find out what "recto" and "verso" are, and that came in handy watching "The Chase" TV quiz show the other night.
