Firstly, please do not apply any kind of tape to a broken book! First steps are to corral the book in a box or tie it up with cotton ribbon to hold in loose pages. A ziploc bag will work in a pinch.
Book repair is a complex affair, so requests are welcome, but books of special value are best left to book conservators.
BocHord offers repairs to hard cover books - for example spines (either detached or missing), cover boards that have broken off and page tears.
Perfect bound books (your typical paperback book) are notoriously fragile. Repairs can be done, but it's not usually cost-effective if the books isn't highly sentimental.
Please use the contact form on the "About Me" page to get in touch and we can provide you with an estimated cost.
