  • [RESOLVED] When to fully remove a partially detatched spine?

I’m trying to understand when it’s best to remove a spine and/or fully deconstruct a book, and when to simply reattach a partially detached spine. In this book the turn-ins are still attached and the inner hinges are broken. One side of the spine is fully detached and the other side of the spine is about 1/3 detached.

    When I come across a book in this state I will more likely break the turn-ins and just do a re-back. Occasionally the book is so valuable that I will try to preserve the connection but only if it will add to preserving the aesthetics.
