Repairing Old Paperbacks


Do-Something-Everyday: May 12, 2016

My husband has about a dozen of his favorite author's novels in paperback. As you can see in the photo above they all are pretty tattered. He asked me to look for a binder who can fix these books for him. I told him he was looking at one. Laughing out loud, he did not connect all the journals I make with bookbinding. So, I fixed one today using a simple technique of gluing the spine
and then binding the spine with a a tape. See photos below. I used Elmer's glue and duct tape. I will do a full tutorial soon.





Thanks for visiting.
