A bit of a biography about an artist I know. . .

I wrote this for our website today!  It was fun and I love bragging about my wonderfully talented husband!

With a Bachelor’s degree in art from Brigham Young University, a Master of Fine Arts degree in printmaking from Utah State University, and 15 years of book binding and restoration experience, Joseph Adams proves to have a strong background in the arts, book binding, restoration and conservation. 

Having worked two years at the Utah State University Library Special Collections department and having taught drawing, painting, printmaking, and art history over four years at Western Texas College, Joseph possesses the knowledge and skills to apply period accurate aesthetics and materials to his restoration and conservation projects. 

With a special interest, education, and experience in copper engraving, a skill so few possess, Joseph also enjoys making stamping tools, metal dies, and other hardware such as clasps to aid with his restoration and conservation projects.  It’s clear that true skill and craftsmanship is evident in all of Joseph’s projects. 

After working at Restoration Books in Logan Utah as the principal bench worker for three years, Joseph has decided to independently open his own bindery, restoration, and conservation studio in Plano Texas.  It is with great excitement and determination that Joseph is pleased to preserve and restore your precious and treasured rare books.
