"They come to the small shop...with books. And stories.
The father who wanted his Bible restored so he could give it to his son before dying of cancer.
The daughter who wanted to repair the books that belonged to her sick mother as a way of keeping her mom's memory alive.
They come to see...the Book Doctor."
The Dallas Morning News
"Ms. McKay does her work in a small, pleasantly fusty shop, with workbenches behind the main counter, gilt-edged books everywhere, bolts of colorful cloth piled atop an old chest of many short, wooden drawers, the kind of chest used to house movable type or old maps."
The New York Times
