In other news, From the Bench I have this amazing example of a late 1800’s family Bible.
There was quite a bit lost to time on this piece. Mainly the entire original spine and whole pieces of hardware, along with very brittle, torn, and loose pages. Unfortunately there is not much that can be done about the hardware; but with the help of some digital imaging colleagues of mine I was able to remedy the spine. It was a really fun challenge!
I hope you enjoy this latest view From the Bench! Check out the rest of the series!
