Her experience as a female apprentice in the male-dominated craft of book conservation, interspersed with incredibly detailed descriptions of specific treatments. I trained as a book conservator; reading this I could almost smell methylcellulose dissolving the glue on a 90-year-old text block. I suspect anyone other than a book nerd would find it uncomfortably dry.
