Thank you for direction on attaching the text block to a new cover. I’ve learned when you ask for donations, particularly books, you don’t know what you’re going to get. We ended up with a pile of Bibles either without covers or badly deteriorated ones, although with “like new” text blocks. I make a makeshift press, and so far stripped and cleaned up 4 block backs. Thinking ahead, I’d like to ask your advice upon making hard covers. I was going to cover “binders board” with some material to make sturdy covers . . . I read somewhere Buckram is a good material for rough service. These Bibles are going to remote villages in Malawi, Africa where we build libraries with donated books we collect ship there. I went to the online supplier you mentioned, Talas, and was overwhelmed with the possibilities of cover fabric. Would you kindly comment if Buckram is the best choice? And a good thickness for binder board. And is muslin the most robust choice versus mull?
Thank you for answering my endless questions!
