Repair Shop.jpg

A touch of fantasy is in the air as the team turns its attention to two Tolkien-inspired notebooks.

First into the barn is David, with a cherished item linking him to his schooldays. Heโ€™s brought along two notebooks containing writing and drawings he created in his teenage years, inspired by JRR Tolkien. Inside, amongst his own work, are a handful of letters written to the teenager by the author himself. As a lonely schoolboy, David spent hours creating the scrapbook, but now, after 55 years, it has fallen into disrepair. Held together by rolls of tape, both the pages and spine need a complete facelift. Bookbinder Chris Shaw works his own form of magic with a painstaking repair that leaves David spellbound.
