Amandine Camp

Book conservatorBook and paper conservator

Book and paper conservator Amandine Camp first started as a bookbinder. She graduated from the Estienne School in Paris and was trained by the bookbinder Jacky Vignon. Later she studied at the Sorbonne to become a book and paper conservator. After graduating from the Sorbonne, Amandine worked abroad at the Canadian Center of Architecture and at the Conservation Center of Québec. She then moved to Ireland where she worked as a paper conservator at the National Archives of Ireland. In 2015 Amandine received the title of Elève de Maître d’art as a papermaker. After two years of training in paper conservation, using techniques from the 15th century, Amandine founded her own conservation studio in Avignon, France. With almost 15 years of experience, Amandine works to conserve books and paper artworks, while also teaching paper conservation to others.


Amandine's missions as a paper and book conservator are to diagnose, conserve and/or restore the cultural property while documenting all the interventions that have been made. The first step is the diagnostic examination, which consists of determining the current state of the materials as well as the intervention necessary for their preservation. Curative conservation mainly consists of acting directly on the cultural property with the aim of delaying its alteration. Restoration consists of direct intervention on the damaged cultural property with the aim of making it easier to read while respecting as much as possible its aesthetic, historical and physical integrity.
