Off the length (which runs along the shoulder of the book). Cutting an ever-so-slightly shorter spine (than the length of the boards) will even out as the bulk of the folded book cloth compensates for the cut. Double-check that the new spine is the correct size. Figure 37 Trimming the length of the new spine. Page 58 4. Attach cloth to the new spine. Book cloth is manufactured with a shiny side, which is generally intended to face in, and a dull side that generally faces out for presentation.

Super. The trade name for the gauze material used for book spines. The super joins the spine to the case via the endpaper (see Figure 11). Page 38 PVA adhesive. For all adhesive needs in this procedure. Brush. For the application of PVA adhesive. Ruler. For finishing edge-trims. Right triangle. For endpaper preparation. knife. For all paper cutting. Keep a supply of spare blades. Bone folding tool. To be used for shaping the endpaper. Microspatula. To be used in stripping the old endpaper. A) Endpaper Replacement Procedure: Before starting this process, lay aside the case, as it will not be needed until the textblock has been prepared through steps A and B.

Page 56 3. Measure and cut the new spine. Now we shall focus on constructing a new backing which will be custom-fitted to the book, beginning with the spine. With a strip of Bristol board exceeding the dimension required for the new spine, measure for the width of the spine by bending the strip against the back of the textblock (see Figure 36). Figure 36 Measurement of Bristol board to book. By measuring in this way, the new spine will meet the specific dimensions of the original case. When measuring, be sure to cover the area of the spine and not that of the shoulder joints.
