Bishop Arts ‘Book Doctor’ focus of DMN story

We got to know Oak Cliff’s "Book Doctor", Julie Schleier, through a short piece in the September 2008 issue, and this weekend I read a story in the DMN, in which Schleier tells the stories of some of the books that find their way into her Bishop Arts District store.

One interesting tidbit: Schleier and co-worker Candice McKay once spent 15 hours scraping shoe polish off of an 1889 Bible and discovered that the Bible’s cover was embellished with gold.
