Restoration Project

removing the old spine glue and mull

Working on the color match

creating a new spine

attaching the old covers with new lining

Almost finished! Just need to glue this up, tuck in the head and tail caps of the spine cloth and add the old spine to the back, then a final visit to the bookpress and this one will be finished. I plan to make a protective four-flap case for it, to slow down the aging process a bit.

turning in the endcap

burnishing down the covers

What was left of the original spine scraped (cleaned) and reattached.

Almost finished!
