Careandfeedingofbooks1947 (2)About Blooks is a relatively new blog by Mindell Dubansky head of the Sherman Fairchild Center for Book Conservation at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Blooks are objects that look like books but aren’t. The lastest post depicting a contemporary ‘book repair kit’ inside a gilded leather binding, entitled The Care and Feeding of Books.  Another Blog not to be missed.Needless to say, most of the contents are no longer recommended…cept for an eraser…you can never go wrong with a good eraser in your hand most of the day.
