Are you stressed out? Bored? Looking at all the centuries-old books on your shelf and wondering how best to restore them to their original glory? If any of the above, this video, made by Sophia Bogle of Save Your Books, has everything you need: old books, professional competency, a complex process described simply, tiny, controlled movements, the image of very old pages somehow sitting in water and not being destroyed. It’s like ASMR, but you could learn a thing or two.
