Chris McAfee

Christopher is a bookbinder, book artist, and a book and paper conservator who is experienced with archival materials, examinations, and treatments. He is skilled in a broad range of bookbinding and conservation techniques and knowledgeable in several aspects of preservation. He began his career when a leaky water heater caused several of his personal memorabilia being water-damaged. This led Chris to pursue a career in conservation with the idea that he could not only better preserve his own records but help others do the same.
