Re: [BKARTS] rebinding a softcover book



I would suggest removing the front and back paper covers and hinging
new endsheets onto the spine with tissue - sekishu or kizukishi. Then
glue on a piece of cambric, trim the endsheets, and case in as usual.
You can also use a little tissue to bridge the gap between the
endsheets and the text.
