Color Touch-up on Cloth Book Spine

This is one way to do color touch up on book spines. Another way is to use an acrylic paint wash. Both have their benefits. Note how an eraser doesn't clean off the brown stains at all and that it really needs the scraping action to even out the color effectively.

Sunshine will Fade your Books

Be sure to keep your books out of direct sunlight. Sunlight will fade the covers and make them more brittle. It sucks the color right out of them! Books stacked unevenly will have uneven fading which is even worse than overall fading because it is harder to correct.
