Family Binding

Bibles pass down faith as well as heritage

· February 5, 2010 · Post a comment

Family Bibles demonstrate more than a religious lineage — they often tell the stories of those that came before through records of births, marriages and deaths as well as photos and other keepsakes. These are a few of the stories behind family Bibles in the Lawrence area.

I'm also a traditional bookbinder and am currently restoring a family bible (I am in the process of mending tears and reinforcing the signatures so the book can be completely re-sewn). I live in Lawrence a few blocks away from downtown/Mass. St. I'm not interested in promoting my work; I'm interested in sharing knowledge and discussing details that most binders will not -- details that are considered closely-guarded secrets in some circles but are, in actuality, intermediate steps in traditional binding. If you'd like to get a glimpse of the process of restoration or have questions about bookbinding in general, feel free to contact me and stop by for a coffee and a chat. I'm happy to talk about any aspect of the art.

I Love The Bible, but christian churches anymore seem to be a place where people go and pay to be judged by hippocrates.
