Bookbinding 101

A set of British cigarette trade cards (circa 1922-1939) on mending old books from the George Arents collection at the New York Public Library. They should have published a set of cards on how to conserve books with that stale smell of cigarette smoke ; )


  1. That was work! Today, we download it on the Kindle. Crazy how world changed.

  2. these are beautiful little illustrations.
