Removing Old Leather For Rebacking

Join me on a journey of restoration as we delve into the delicate process of removing old leather from the spine edge and corners of a 1909 two-volume edition of "Twentieth Century History of Erie County." Witnessing this transformation offers a glimpse into the care and craftsmanship that breathes new life into historical artifacts.

As you can see, the leather covering the spine and corners has seen its share of wear and tear. Time, handling, and environmental factors have taken their toll, leaving the once vibrant surface cracked and dry.
