Another Blessing Book under Construction

The bookboard is cut, now I need to add linen and a spine lining, paste the bookcloth onto the bookboard, then press and let that all dry under weight. Next comes turning in the edges of the bookcloth, then add the endpapers (tomorrow after properly dried). Lastly, any last minute fine-tuning needed to make sure all pages are flush, then in the press to create the creases in the gutters.

Thanks Robin! I finished the second one this morning, and boy am I exhausted. I've never had two of these back-to-back before, and it was good yet challenging at the same time.
