GREEN’S BOOKS offers a range of expert bookbinding and conservation services, and tuition. With experience of working on treasures from some of the UK’s most important collections such as those of the Bodleian and British Libraries, Arthur undertakes treatments on a range of library and archive material from modern printed paper books to medieval parchment charters. Treatments range from a simple tear repair on a precious document, to sympathetically re-binding a treasured family book. Bookbinding and conservation tuition is offered throughout the year with workshops themed around historic bookbinding structures and various conservation techniques. Alongside this, Arthur offers one-to-one tuition by arrangement. A consultation service is also available, offering collection surveys and training for those working with historic collections.
