I've used this book quite a lot and I have to say that it is very user-friendly. The graphics are nicely done and everything is explained in detail. It is very practical for anyone who repairs rare/old/special books.

As an artist that has only taken a couple bookmaking classes yet makes mostly books, this book is awesome! I bought the book solely for it's instructions on clamshell boxmaking and it is spot on! I have many how-to books and by far this is the clearest, most concise instruction both in its writing and diagrams. I have yet to use the rest of the book for any repairs, but the clamshell box instructions were perfect and I was able to make a beautiful box in 1 morning what had been taking me weeks to troubleshoot. Totally worth every penny!
