Japanese Craftsman Skillfully Restores Old Book To Near Mint Condition

If you’ve ever regretted that a treasured a book was falling apart, and then you’ll enjoy seeing how this Japanese craftsman skillfully restored a tattered 1,000-page dictionary to near perfect condition. An episode of the Japanese show titled Shuri; Bakaseru displayed Nobuo Okano, an artisan who practices in old books. During the 10-minute-long segment, he shows how the well-loved English-Japanese dictionary was brought back to life. It has had quite a history and served the owner from his junior high years through his adult life. Now that his daughter is entering college, he wants to pass the book along to her.
