Repairing a Cracked Interior Hinge

0

I reviewed the videos related to repairing hinges but I do not know if there are other considerations since the cloth underneath is still intact.  I do not need to do a perfect repair as these are reference books, but I want to make sure the repair is durable.

    The durability of this repair will be limited to the strength of the attachment of the pages on either side of the gap. Do not be fooled into thinking that thicker paper will be stronger. The white Sekishu will be enough for this. (Only a quarter inch wide or so.) As in most book repair: Less is more. When the book breaks someday that will be the time for a more full repair. The only other option is to break it more now and do more stregthening from behind.
