Alex McGuckin has dedicated more than two decades of his life to preserving history. McGuckin's craft is bookbinding and restoration.

What began as a hobby has evolved into an all-encompassing passion.

"If someone comes to me, say with a book from the 17th century, I want to be able to use the same materials, the same techniques, the same ways that a binder in the 17th century would have bound that book."
