Re: A Question of Technique & Integrity



Sharon -

As your Rubaiyat is only 100 years old, you might be able to find a whole
version of your particular edition.  You'd then be able to see what the
original binding looked like, and do something along the same lines.
(E-bay, rare books dealers, catalogues, etc. would be places to look).

One thing you might want to include in the finished product is a book plate
in the piece (on acid free paper) stating that you did re-bind the item, and
the date it was re-bound.  That way, book dealers in a hundred years will
know it isn't an original binding.
