RESTORATION OF WRITTEN HERITAGE
Our mission is to ensure the durability and safeguarding of our written heritage.
The choice of their implementation methods is always the result of a concerted and appropriate reflection on the nature and level of damage to the support.
For each work, our restorers systematically take into account the parameters of the paper composition (nature, weight, tint) as well as those concerning inks or any other pigment.
Restoration of old coverings
To do this, our bookbinders-restorers, perfectly trained in the techniques of vintage binding, are able to consolidate the existing without distorting the form, as well as to reproduce the gestures of yesteryear.
Restoration of figurative documents
The diversity of the supports, the techniques of illustration (inks, pigments, prints) and the modalities of good conservation and final protection of the documents are perfectly known and mastered by our conservators. This allows us to be able to always propose the most adequate project.
Restoration of sealed or unsealed parchment documents
Parchment skins, seal supports (silk lakes, tails) and wax seals are therefore treated with the utmost care in compliance with the ethical rules governing their handling.
In the case of old registers requiring a replacement binding, we offer new traditional bindings, identical or new, in respect of the original materials.
