Time and use can break the back of even the best-bound book. And, unfortunately, many a fine leather book has crumbled away in damp or mousey corners. William Payne can restore books, including rare and first editions. He works out of his St. Crispin’s Bookbinding Studio, and his shelves of leather and handmade or marbled paper can banish shabbiness and fill the bibliophile’s heart with joy. Bookbinding requires enormous patience and a lot of time, so don’t expect same-day service. William Payne, St. Crispin’s Bookbinding Studio. 368-4745. Mon-Fri 9-noon and 1:30-5.
