Making Modern Daguerreotypes

Pneumatic Hinge Leather

We now stock paper-thin pneumatic leather to repair the torn hinges on leather daguerreotype cases (this leather is made for repairing bellows on antique pump organs.) It's rather expensive but seems to be just the ticket. Pieces are about 2" x 12" and sell for $18.00 plus shipping and handling, and includes illustrated instructions. We also have small bottles of PVA archival glue (2 oz. -- enough for a lot of cases) at $6.00 each which includes the cost of shipping within the U.S.
