I have only minimal experience with book conservation, but as a preservation technician for several years, and as one who has worked in libraries and archives for nearly a decade, I think I can safely say that Jeff Peachy has some wonderful ruminations on the craft. He obviously knows what he's doing and speaks on a number issues that come his way during his daily practice. Well worth a look see. And he has footnotes! His tools look good, too.
