Bookbinding Services

Besides in-house conservation, binding and restoration, Scott is available to come to the location of larger collections in need of a collection conservation approach.

These onsite consultations may include recommendations for outsourced services as well as treatment proposals to be carried out in his studio. Insurance companies can also use these services to help expedite claims.

This process is ideal for high-value irreplaceable volumes. Attention to detail is demanded to return both structural integrity and an aesthetic original appearance. Techniques used originally for the book restoration, such as molded leather and gold-tooling, are used to produce an authentic result.
From medieval facsimiles to decorative half-leather bindings, we can reproduce a binding to reflect the period of publication. Modern books can also be made elegant by binding in a traditional way
We are able to special order materials that we may not have on hand. Besides being able to emboss title information in gold, silver and multiple colors, it is possible to reproduce your artwork into metal dies that can then be used to emboss the cover of your book. Let your imagination be your guide!
Most old documents in need of conservation require several treatments. These can include: washing, de-acidification, light bleaching, repair, in-fills, flattening, backing, and encapsulation. Each object, paper or vellum, is carefully examined and discussed before conservation.
Special books encompassing the memorabilia and/or notes of congratulations can be assembled and bound in beautiful presentation bindings for special events.
These creations are personal and artistic. The bindings are interpretations of the author´finished s work reflected in the art and medium of modern design binding. Scott Kellar has exhibited his award-winning bindings nationally and internationally. For the discriminating collector.
