Introductory

 

Welcome to Traditional Western Bookbinding and Conservation - Student Work Exhibition!

 

We are once again very proud for hosting this exhibition, displaying the work of an outstanding group of students who worked hard for over three months learning the skills of book conservation.

Restoration of rare books is not just a technique, but also a rigorous scientific work. Conservators aim to pursue sublime integrity and personal quality. According to Analects, “who in his eager pursuit of knowledge forgets his food, who in the joy of its attainment forgets his sorrows, and who does not perceive that old age is coming on?”

I wish all students a continuous and persistence of learning.
