The Saldara Family Bible


Welcome to the first From the Bench!

My first offering is a look at the first of several late 1800’s family bibles. I find that many of these books are in much the same condition when they come in, but it is fascinating how many different varieties of covers are to be found! The variety makes preserving them and sharing the results great fun!

This commission also provided me the opportunity to create archival digital images of the Bible’s genealogy pages for the client to share.

Enjoy this series of before pictures provided by the client and after from the bench! Check out the rest of the series!
