Services

Byzantium Studios is proud to offer a full range of restoration and conservation services for books and manuscripts on paper, vellum, and parchment.  Books submitted to the bindery for restoration are exclusively hand-worked using traditional English, French, and German binding techniques along with some of the latest innovations in modern conservation.  In addition to sound archival practices, we use only the finest domestic and imported materials available.

We take great pride in providing superior workmanship.  Our bindings often feature hand-sewn silk and linen headbands and hand-made papers, hand-tooled designs and lettering using natural egg glair with 23 karat gold leaf.  In keeping with the highest conservation standards all treatments are reversible and only acid free or Ph neutral materials are used.

Byzantium Studios does not engage in practices that harmfully alter the original structure of the book such as the cropping of edges or the trimming of the backs of books.
