Worn spine at head and tail


See attached pics of beloved Sherlock Holmes tome. Spine starting to wear/tear at top and some wear at the corners on the tail. This looks like a job for Japanese tissue repair, right? Any other thoughts? Hinges intact though starting to become loose. Thanks.

    Hi Gaylen, the course you are looking for is this one (below). Yes to Japanese tissue. If you just keep in mind preserving the hollow you can probably work out how to pry open the cloth to insert some strengthening tissue! Less is more.

    2-108b: Repair a Frayed Book Spine Head and Tail ~ $9.99

    I hope that helps!
