Re-case a Bible 1

Re-case a Bible

This is an intermediate level course for a typical older daily Bible. The main point is to re-case the Bible because the text-block is loose from the cover.

  • This particular book: The cover is made of bonded leather (over cloth). The cover is intact with intact end-sheets still attached to the cover. The text-block is intact as well.
  • Goals: Save the end-sheets intact. Preserve the functionality. Add strength. Preserve the book for another 50 years or so. Maybe longer!
  • Step by Step Instructions
  • 125 Minutes of Video!
  • Tools and Materials List

PERPETUAL CAVEAT: Never repair valuable and/or scarce books. When in doubt only do preservation treatments and consult an accredited professional.

This Book

This is my aunt Marsha’s Bible. Although I told her I wouldn’t charge her to do the restoration, she paid me in cookies! Yum.

Step by Step Instructions

The steps follow the videos. From assessing the Bible to Deconstruction, Repairs and Reconstruction. There are over 60 steps all together including some mistakes and what to do about them.

Video Instruction

These are long videos. I won’t be offended if you watch it at 2X speed. I did edit, but apparently I just had a lot to say for this one. It is almost entirely in real time.

Tools and Materials

If you have the Save Your Books’ Bible Care & Repair Kit and the Basic Book Repair Kit you have nearly all you need already. See Course 1-202 for levels of tools needed for different archival book repairs. A specific list is in the curriculum.

The hardest thing about this is the color touch up and keeping glue where it belongs. If you can go slow and be careful, then you can do this.

After re-casing, the Bible is wonderfully flexible and strong.

    In this Re-casing a Bible course, the first video is missing. The first video linked here is the same as the last video, just fyi.
