About & Privacy Policy

Hi everyone, and thanks for stopping by!  This is a hobby blog based on an interest of mine that started from collecting old and antique books.  Our family also owns dozens and dozens of books that are very dear to us and old, but not necessarily antique value wise.  So to make sure The Complete Chess Course by Fred Reinfeld and many other old books didn’t fall apart into pieces, I began learning the various ways to repair and bind books.  Right now I’m a bit short on a good camera or video camera, but I can provide information and point you to more visual resources as we get going here.  Thanks for stopping by!

Contact Info: You can e-mail me at master.dayton@gmail.com and I will do my best to respond within 72 hours if not sooner.  All questions on content, guest posting, advertising, etc can be directed to this e-mail address.

This website is an informational website designed to provide information and advice for individuals looking for information on book binding.  However, we are not professionals, nor do we claim to be.  Simply enthusiastic hobbyists wishing to share some of our passion and knowledge with others.  We are not legally responsible for any information on here that is incorrect, dated, or otherwise not fully up to speed.  If you’re looking at repairing an expensive antique, hire a professional.
