Rebacking a book with leather La Liturgie - 1821
20 January 2011
A miniature hand-turned screw finishing press holding a book needing repair with a lignum viate folder. This unique hand-turned screw finishing press was made for me. The woodworker Tom Conroy also made a longer version for use in my bindery. The book will be rebacked using goat's leather dyed to match. The original spine will be replaced making it all look "as new".
