Re: tight back spine removal

Tony Cains (Trinity College, Dublin) demonstrated a similar way to Polly's
technique, with a major difference. He faced the leather spine with heat-set
tissue applied with anhydrous ethanol. Then he lifted the spine, rebacked
the book, reattached the spine. He then removed the tissue with acetone.
This method uses no water no that no darkening or other damage occurs to the
original spine. This also works well with fragile paper spines being lifted
from french/italian volumes in paper wrappers.
