How to Correct Slanted Book Spines: Advanced

Slanted book spines occur when books are kept in a slanted position over a long period of time and the humidity and heat make the adhesive relax and then re-form in the new shape.

This is an advanced method of repairing slanted book spines that also accomplishes re-lining the spine and strengthening it with new materials. This method only works for books with intact covers. Be sure to watch the end of the video for a much easier, quick and dirty method (not recommended for delicate books).
