Here is a really interesting resource - a video on the restoration of books immediately after the flood:

Book conservators begin to restore the many books damaged by the devastating flood in Florence, Italy in 1966. Peter Waters covers a book in leather. Christopher Clarkson makes a velum binding.

This video is made available from the University of Utah. Hat tip to PhiloBiblos
