A Book a Week 2014: Made, Altered, Repaired. Week 22

Week of 2 June

Book Repair Class - Rebacking

I taught another basic book repair class at the library. There was a full house (10), but we had enough space and repairs to work on.

Rebacking is a bookbinding term that means replacing and/or repairing the spine of a book.
Here is an excellent training guide from Minitex.

Look how proud John is! He did a really nice job rebacking this old textbook. You can tell this tool man is used to working with his hands.
