Re: [BKARTS] Glue trouble



To end the thread, or to continue it in due admonitions if neccessary:

We experimented with a regular flour paste, PVA, and a mache paste (made
from flour, sugar, alum and water) - and decided upon the latter. We pressed
the book for ten minutes at all stages to allow the paste to set , and
pressed the book overnight. Quite frankly, I'm amazed at the results. Smooth
cover, firmly attatched at all corners (without tacking or fighting with it
! ), smooth endpapers with no buckling from excess water, and a very nice
clothbound books is the final result. (We are using the broadcloth).

Are there any suggestions, recommendations, or is there anything more I
should know? I'm really excited, and hope that this is a good solution.

Thanks,
J.A
