Join Fine Books & Manuscripts specialist Devon Eastland for a demonstration of bookbinding techniques, restoration treatments and a discussion of approaches to repair with examples. See books from the inside out and bring your questions. Devon has worked in the field of restoration for more than twenty years. Repair a chair and sit down, fix a book and read! Light refreshments will be served, and all items in the November 18 Fine Books & Manuscripts auction will be available for preview.

Devon began learning bookbinding and book repair as a hobby while a college undergraduate, and upon graduation began work as a book dealer. Devon was fortunate to work with early printed books (many pre-1700) executing repairs and restorations to leather bindings that maintained archival standards with an eye to authentic period structures and materials. Working with early books also translated into side work for films, and Devon was lucky to be involved in several feature films that required custom and period bookbinding work.

Reception: 5:30PM | Presentation: 6PM
