BOOKBINDER RECOMMENDATIONS

David Gladfelter writes: "How about Steadfast Book Bindery
(Henry and Jeff Van Dyke) in Pittsburgh?  For an example of
their work (not their best -- it's side sewn, not signature
sewn) see the Asylum's 25th anniversary issue. They do decent
repairs and restorations too.  Their address is 938 Penn Ave.,
Lower Level, Pittsburgh, PA. 15222 phone (412) 281-1149."

Ray Flanigan writes: "Here's an outstanding book binder.
I've had several leather books bound or rebound by Lo Gatto.

Lo Gatto Bookbinding, Inc.
Medo Lo Gatto
390 Paterson Ave.
East Rutherford, NJ 07073
(201)438-4344
Lo Gatto Bookbinding, Inc.

Harold Eiserloh writes: "My neighbor, a retired minister,
had a bookbinding shop for several years before it became
too much for him. He now has a limited operation in his
double garage, binding Bibles, repairing bindings, even
making boxed bindings, with gold embossing using various
hard type or blindstamping. He can bind or repair with
leather with raised bands or cloth, replace endpapers,
rebind using stitches, etc. He loves his craft and has
taught bookbinding. He has shown me volumes of "The
Numismatist" which he had bound for a local collector.
He has repaired generations old Bibles which looked almost
new, repaired torn leather, replaced missing areas of
leather, etc. His name is

Rollin Polk
207 Veda Mae Dr.
San Antonio, TX 78216.
His e-mail address is  rpolk1@grandecom.net"

Anne Bentley of the Massachusetts Historical Society
Writes: "The American Institute for Conservation of
Historic and Artistic Works maintains a database of
conservators that includes bookbinders at
database of conservators.

If your readers check into the website, they'll be
able to access conservators by specialty and by region,
which should make their search much easier."
