This is STAGE 3: Prioritizing function.
It involves comprehensive repairs to maximise usability for a book well used and loved, which may include major structural refurbishment. It returns the book to a usable state, but does not seek to deny any of the age or history of use. This is my favourite choice, but may be too much intervention for a really fragile book. It’s a judgement call we would make together. The results though, are truly beautiful.
