Back to Life

 This battered dictionary was received by Tokyo craftsman Okano from an old customer who had no use for it.
Okano removes the binding, reinforces the pages, irons the crumpled corners, files the edges, and crafted new leather cover. The book repairman's daughter is heading off to college. He wanted to offer her the gift of a lifetime. The gift of knowledge.
