Ojos Halcones Take Peru by Storm

Monday , April 20, 2009

For a week and a half, Gary, Joyce, and I have been working in Arequipa, Peru at the Recoleta Monastery. We have been stabilizing and protecting damaged books. Many of these books have been damaged in earthquakes. They are in suprisingly good condition considering how old they are and what they have been through. We have been doing some mending and uniting books with custom boxes built by Linda Lundy and Joyce Miller in Iowa City.  Below are pictures of the Recoleta and the collections we are working with.   �
