Front cover of Bible (name purposely air-brushed)
original full-grain leather cover, published 1976.
Back cover detached; some pages separated.
Carefully removing old brittle glue from the text block.
Detail of glue removal - this is very delicate work
not to cut the threads which holds the sections/pages together.
Old glue removed; new PVA glue applied.
New heavy cambric fabric backing glued on.
Very carefully removing the old "cheesecloth" backing
from the covers with a surgical scalpel.
Detail of old fabric removal. Why publishers use such light-weight
fabrics has always been a puzzle to me! (Save $?)
Covers/endpapers cleaned and ready to glue in the text block.
New inner endpapers (the original endpapers will also be attached);
the client wanted the original headband material and ribbons kept.
The rebound Bible - ready for a 100 years of use!
