Re: [BKARTS] Leather rebacking and alternatives



Could you please tell me where one finds air plane linen?

--------------------------------------------------------------

Talas has it as already mentioned (but pretty pricey)

Cotton Muslin works very well..., and is much cheaper.

alternative repairs for leather volumes...

Try a laminate made of airplane linen and Moriki (100% Kozo) Japanese paper. Moriki is available in a variety of colors for coordinating with the original covering.

Let the laminate dry under weight.

Afterwards, consolidate with Klucel-G.
This keeps the fibers of Japanese paper from getting
loose and "hairy".   This new material can be pared,
OR:
When making the laminate, place the Japanese
paper back from the edge of the airplane linen about
1/16th of an inch.  Makes it less noticeable under
the original leather.

AFTER rebacking, lightly (i.e. thinly) coat the
Japanese paper with acrylic wax SC6000 to
harden the surface of Japanese paper and
give it a more leathery appearance.  Remember:
a light coat of acrylic wax.  Too much and it can
get lumpy.

Also, check the online tutorials at the Book Arts
website: Reference/Bookbinding Tutorials
Repair of broken leather joints using Japanese paper.
And maybe explore a molded paper spine

Practice. Good luck. You can do it.

Hope this helps,
Whew,
Daniel Winston
