Kickstarter Alert! Book Restoration Unveiled: A Guide for Book Collectors

Save Your Books is one of the most inspiring YouTube channels about book restoration. It is curated by Sophia S.W. Bogle, a professional with over 25 years of experience in book conservation and restoration.

Every time I see in my feed a new video made by Sophia, I stop to watch it. And every time I find out something new.

Now you can help Sophia to publish her new work: Book Restoration Unveiled: A Guide for Book Collectors.
