This is a 1875 Family Bible published by A. J. Holman & Co. It's a relatively common Bible, that we see very often - deterioration of the cover is horrible, but always the sewing is intact. I put this work on my bench yesterday, but haven't actually started it. For, I was busy working on a computer. (I'm cracking my neck and stretching my back right now, if you wanna know how I'm doing after sitting in front of a computer for hours. ahh, I can't imagine how office workers survive this day after day.... ) The client wants the family record in the Bible scanned and burnt on a CD as well as to insert a new set of blank family record pages for the future use. We offer that sort of services here, - create an electric record of the family history, and clean and clear up the already written record pages and insert them. Hey, if you are a bookbinder, (I mean, a bookbinder who restores books.) offer this service to your clients, yeah? It's always nice to see people try to keep their traditions alive. The thing is, we DID have this design of family record pages which has been cleaned and ready to print. But, recently, my master lost his flash drive which contained a collection of blank family record designs that I've worked on over the years. Thus I had to do the clean up process all over again. (with a fee!!!! duh! always!) As a bookbinder, I generally like things that normal people consider as tedious, but something about working on the computer gets me exhausted either physically or mentally. Anyway, it's done, and I'm going to my bench and tackle this Bible now.
