An 1846 copy of “A Christmas Carol”, past, present, and now preserved for the future

Charles Dickens would be proud. The spine and cover had become detached from the text of this keepsake purchased in England on a honeymoon long ago. We were able to rebuild the spine with a hollow tube to make it stronger than before. It was re-backed with a matching red cloth. And so, as Tiny Tim said, “A Merry Christmas to us all; God bless us, every one!”

A Custom Book for the Happy Couple

Dear National Library, I just wanted to drop a line to say thank you so much for the amazing job you guys did on the wedding book. I see what you mean when you say that it will last a century or more. The craftsmanship is top notch and the pages turned out even better than I had hoped. Overall, you can count me as a truly satisfied customer. You guys have been great and I appreciate you.


P.S. Here’s a photo of two people you made very happy!

Surprise Gift

Good afternoon National Library Bindery,
Well, I am back from our meeting in Toronto and the book was a HUGE success!
He actually cried while looking through it and had to stop and put it away as he didn’t want to become a blubbering fool in front of everyone — LOL!
He said it was the best thing that he has ever received and could not thank me enough! 
Thank you for all your help and hard work to get it done with not very much time.

Warm Regards,
Lorac Communications Inc.
Collingwood, Canada
