Would anyone have any suggestions for the following scenario?
I have been asked to remove the paper cover from a perfect bound paperback
(which I have done) and rebind it into a hardcovered case binding.
Normally, since one isn't re-sewing, one tips on single-fold endpapers,
wraps the spine (and onto the endpapers) with linen, and attaches the case
by pasting down the board papers. I have done this before and it seems to
work alright, although not if the book was to be subjected to heavy use, or
if the book was heavy itself - neither being true in this scenario.
My problem is the client has chosen a Japanese-style endpaper which I don't
really think is strong enough to hold, although the linen will help. I've
though about a made endpaper (which sort of negates the good qualities of
the Japanese paper). Does anyone know of another endpaper construction
which would work in this case (no pun intended)?
