Leather needs to breathe, also the Mylar jacket can trap moisture against the leather which leads to rotten leather and mildew. Do hydrate the leather about once a year. Not to be morbid but leather is skin and just like yours it needs conditioning to stay nice and last a long time.

See how to properly condition and hydrate your leather bindings HERE. To clean fragile leather book bindings, use the Cleaning Regenerating Soap below, which does not contain either solvents or caustic soda and respects the leather (but always test before on a hidden part).

book centuries. The origins of leather as a method of holding together the pages of a book are most likely in practicality. Detached boards are the most common place leather bookbindings fail and many treatments involve a combination of these five primary techniques which will be taught: mechanical sewing extensions and tacketing, inner hinge repairs, interior-board repairs (both splitting and slotting), outer joint repairs, and several styles of rebacking.

Though originally made for leather books, Bookbinder’s Dressing is the ultimate leather care for all fine leather items. Modern leather care products have horrible ingredients containing petroleum distillates and silicone.

These mass market formulations are expensive, do greater harm than good and are simply garbage. Bookbinder’s Dressing contains rich emollients that nurture, beautify and. Apply to the binding and work on your turn ins, fix your corners, and as Edith Diehl notes, be sure to "Nip up" between every step once the leather is on the book.

In the Victorian age most book owners felt that any book worth keeping deserved to be rebound, usually in some form of leather to become part of your personal library.

This means books from this era (when book owners were wealthy and privileged), and earlier, have often been re-bound making the original publisher’s bindings that much rarer. A common treatment of the time was to clean and treat leather bindings with castile soap, potassium lactate, and British Museum leather dressing.

Cunha experimented with accelerated decay testing of leathers available at the time, and those samples still exist. In the modern era, treatment decisions are made more selectively. Conservationist friends tell us they use a product called Cellugel to treat this degenerative condition in leather bindings.

Cellugel's cellulose ethers are absorbed deep within the leather, stabilizing it without discoloration. Handling a leather binding may be. Cellugel is a product developed especially for books affected by red rot. Applied liberally with a lint-free cloth, it is absorbed by the leather and dries within minutes.

It will not darken, discolor, or leave a film on leather surfaces, nor will it harm paper or other book materials with which it comes into contact. September 1,Newsletter Issue # Treatment for Leather Bookbindings Tip of the Week.

A mixture of 60% neats-foot oil and 40% anhydrous lanolin by volume is one of the safest dressings for most leather bindings. The mixture can be made by melting the lanolin in a double boiler and mixing in the proper amount of neat´s-foot oil.

For the leather binding book collector we want to share an important step in preserving your precious leather bound books: Hydrating the leather. Because leather is an organic material meant to deteriorate over time, it's important to take preventative measures to help leather bindings last a.

Damaged leather bookbindings pose a great challenge to book conservators, and traditional leather rebacking is the single most difficult treatment for a book conservator to master. This workshop will examine how leather rebacking techniques can be improved by re-evaluating the process according to contemporary conservation principles.

The indiscriminate treatment of leather with fatty substances is a long-standing tradition among museum and library staffs. The dressings are usually applied in an attempt to slow deterioration, improve the appearance of the leather, and perhaps restore some of its former strength and flexibility.

The book covers all aspects of Skin and Leather preservation, from Cuir Bouillie to Bookbindings. There is significant discussion of the technical and chemical elements necessary in conservation, meaning that professional conservators will find the book a vital part of their collection.

This survey gathered information from twenty-three book conservators on methods and materials used in the conservation of leather bookbindings in laboratories throughout the United States. The conservators work predominantly with special collections, in institutions with older collections, or have treatment responsibilities for special.

Whatsmore, in the industry I work in (high-end designer furniture) where full grain aniline-dyed leather is used, a monthly treatment is needed (soap-flake wash). The following is an overview of the chemistry of the major tanning processes, vegetable tanning, mineral tanning, brain tanning, aldehyde tanning and syntans.

For the purposes of this chapter, vegetable tanning is the most common leather used, both historically and in modern times, for book binding.

The Leather Conservation Centre (LCC) in Northhampton, UK released some details of a new treatment for red rot. It reduces acidity and stabilizes the collagen molecules. Given the crushing number of red rotted bookbindings, and current lack of treatment options beyond surface consolidation, this is promising news.

Some of the most prized books among bibliophiles are the thick leather-bound volumes from the world’s best authors like Shakespeare, Rumi and Sun Tzu.

Leather books are made to look good and to last for generations, which is why most family Bibles are often leather-bound. Caring for these books requires more attention. It discusses the causes of leather decay, the PIRA test, and the limited usefulness of leather dressings.

It recommends the use of potassium lactate as a preservative and gives the formula for its manufacture A valuable book for any one interested in the care and preservation of leather bindings." Good. Seller Inventory # ABE A warning was given about the dangers of using too much lactate, which made books sticky and could cause fungal growth.

The books had to be absolutely dry when the leather dressing was applied. Apply sparingly to the leather and rub well. Wait two days, then polish the treated leather with a soft cloth.

Another reason for dressing leather books is the regular occasion it offers for library personnel or conservators to handle, clean and inspect the physical books, a part of curatorial care that is often slighted because of the press of other duties.

There is an immediate change, usually for the better, in the appearance and feel of the leather.

book repair. Initially the leather becomes softened and swollen, followed by cleavage of the protein chains in fibrils, the leather ultimately becoming dry and powdery and easily crumbled by handling. This most often is seen (for example, on leather bookbindings) as reddish, raw areas of loss.

Red rot is not reversible; damage from it is permanent. The covering of books makes somewhat similar demands on the leather as covering furniture, in that the leather needs to mould well to the shape of the object being covered, and it is required to be durable in the face of atmospheric pollutants for a longer period of time than in any other end use.

In addition binding leather needs to be able to. The Conservation lab at Reyniers recently hosted a week-long workshop with Jeff Peachey on the Conservation of Leather Bookbindings, organized by Liz Dube and supported by the American Institute for Conservation.

You may remember Jeff from his presentation in Rare Books and Special Collections on his treatment of Dante’s La Commedia, from We also restore antiquarian books for collectors and preserve Bibles, children's books, family genealogies; as well as create hand crafted leather and fine paper journals.

The stack (signature) is then bound together along one edge by either sewing with thread through the folds or by a layer of flexible adhesive.Karen Vidler pursues ongoing research and training into the conservation of leather bookbindings.

She has attended academic training in leather chemistry & technology as well as the hands-on manufacture of leather. She applies current research in improved examination and treatment of bookbinding leather into her practical and teaching work.
