I have followed Sophia’s video series regarding the Fairy Tale book, because I have a somewhat similar opportunity. My experience is limited in that I have been repairing children’s books for 3-1/2 years but I am completely self-taught. I am not inclined to invest in much more serious materials because I don’t believe I would ever use book cloth/muslin/buckram. But I do have book cloth tape, both 2″ and 4″ and have a plan to proceed with the book shown below. That said I am interested in any suggestions or thoughts on how to proceed. As one can see, the book as it came to me has been dismembered and rough edges cleaned up a bit. There are several loose pages still that go at the very end of text block. So in the absence of book cloth and not intending to replace end papers, I will undoubtedly attempt to re-case using single stitched hinge tape. I know, I know, but those are the materials I have and a limited skill set. Come on, offer some insight I welcome a challenge and info and will post the final “product” here.
