"As antiquarian booksellers, we sometimes acquire books in need of sympathetic restoration or repair to make them look their best. We’ve known Anastasia for the past dozen or so years and from the start we’ve been impressed with her attention to detail and skilled craftsmanship. For example, just recently she re-attached the front cover of a fine English binding and, as responsible dealers, we’ll have to point out the fact to a prospective purchaser because it’s virtually undetectable. We’re sure you’ll be satisfied with any book repair challenge you present to her."

"Anastasia has been, and continues to be, my binder of choice for over ten years. In reference to my specialization in 18th century books, her restoration and rebinding is state of the art and examples of her work grace the shelves of many private and institutional collections on both sides of the Atlantic. My highest recommendation for her talents and reliability."

"In forty-three years of antiquarian bookselling, we have come across many old and rare books that are in need of care and restoration. We are very grateful for the loving attention they get from Anastasia Osolin, Bookbinder. We have never been disappointed with the repair/restoration of our books; on the contrary the books always come back to us beautifully and professionally restored and at a price we think is very fair. Thank you for all of the wonderful work you have done for us."
