I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.
Jorge Luís Borges
By saving books we preserve knowledge, history and memories.
We, human beings, need the memory to ensure an identity and strong roots.
After long years of travelling and migrations I could only find myself close to my books: my safe island.
Every time a client enters my workshop I am willing to repair his books.
I am conscious he is not coming with just paper but a soul to repair and keep alive for the coming generations.
Special request to create a book for a unique occasion?
Make an appointment and visit me in my atelier.
