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 Direct Sunlight: Over time, direct sunlight can cause the leather to fade and degrade. Always store your books away from direct sunlight.
  • Keep Books Dry: Leather and humidity don't mix well. Keep your books in a dry, well-ventilated environment to prevent mold growth.
  • 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.
  • Handle with Clean Hands: Oils and dirt from your hands can damage the pages and leather over time. Ensure your hands are clean and dry before handling.

Remember, these are books to be loved, respected, and passed down - your care ensures their stories continue to be told.
