Small green book needs your help with pictures


I am posting this question again. This time with pictures. This book is small. It is separated completely from its spine. 1) how can I put back the text block with the cover?
The text blocks are separated from each other. 2) how to sew the page block to the main page block? First page is very dry. It will break with a touch. 3) is this dry page salvageable? The leather is very dry and the edges are breaking. 4) how can I condition the leather. 5) how can I stable the edges that are separating ?

    This is a Re-case. Study the re-casing courses. The brittle page will have to be lined with thin tissue using paste. You could use heat set tissue or a Kozo tissue that you can see through. The heat set tissue will be better for this because it is dry.

    You cannot re-condition leather to make it not break. See the courses on leather care and repair.

    Tissue such as Moriki could be used to stabilize edges.
