I've had around 8 antique (18th and 19th century) books repaired by Leonard's over the past few years and they exceed my expectations every time. This cookery book from the mid-1800s had a unique raised pattern on the cover, but the cover was disintegrating from the edges inward. I asked if they could save any of the pattern as part of the new cover/binding and they saved nearly all of it, integrating it with the new so that it looks like it was made that way. I am also so impressed with the fine work on the corners. They did a beautiful job!
