I've set myself a task for the Christmas holidays -- rebinding and =
totally reconstructing a story book from my sister's childhood.  It's a =
wonderful thing -- but was published in 1966 and bound with a lot of =
what seems to be animal-based glue.  I'm separating all the signatures, =
and plan to sew it together again a la Keith Smith's non-adhesive =
binding techniques, with five stations.  Now, I have two questions for =
you :

How best can I dissolve the residual glue left on the spine?  In some =
places it's totally disintegrated, but in others, is very thick.

How best can I stick a page together that formed both sides of a =
signature, but has been separated with time and wear? =20

All best for the Festive Season to all of you.

Robyn
