Subject: freeing the pastedowns


|
|  Occasionally, people want me to recase a book, but want the old flyleaf
| and the old pastedown saved, because there may
| be important graphics or signatures on them. I have always had to decline
| these jobs, since I have no idea of how to
| save the old pastedowns. Ideally, I would like to create a new cover, with
| new boards and leather, but save the old
| endpapers and attach them to the new cover.
|  I have tried various techniques--- steaming, solvents, ironing--- to free
| the old pastedowns from the boards on
| practice books, but nothing seems to work. Is there anyway to do this? It
| seems the older the book, the more fragile
| the pastedowns, and the more avidly they adhere to the boards.
| Thanks,
| Jet
