<< I have several older books that I've asked various parties for binds
on restoring, but these books I would like to "play" with. Searching the
book_arts-l archive for "perfect" and "rebind" (with various suffices and
spacings/dashes) seemed to yeild little info. Any suggestions? >>
How about the technique Rob Shepard explains in his book *Hand-Made Books; An
Introduction to Bookbinding*. I've loaned my copy of the book, and so I can't
describe the technique accurately enough to post here. Although I haven't
tried it myself, the procedure seems like a workable solution. I really like
the entire book.
