Book Care

Taking proper care of your leatherbound and vintage books can significantly extend their lifespan and preserve the beauty of their binding. Here are some general guidelines to ensure your precious books last for generations:

  • Avoid High Temperatures: High heat can dry out the leather, leading to cracks. Room temperature is ideal for your books.
  • Clean Regularly: Dust your books with a soft cloth. For deeper cleaning, consider a gentle leather cleaner, but always spot-test first.
