*This is a narrated video from our previous “Full Reback” video:

This kind of repair is used when the spine if off/loose, and the hinges attaching the boards to the textblock are weakened or detached.

Not appropriate for special collections / rare items.

  1. I am curious also how to repair wear on the board corners and edges. Thank you for demonstrating at beginner speed. The worst damage that I have observed is done by pulling books off shelves using the spine stiffener at the top (evident also on the repaired book). Why isn’t this area given more reinforcement? What ia done about the cord at the top of the block spine?

  2. Brilliant, calm and collected, no panic, no stupid music, I can now feel confident to re-do four very rare books that have been assigned to me, I am a leather worker and can now start to expand my skills, thanks to you both, good camera work.

  3. Excellent educational video where each step is explained fully so even I understood how to correctly repair my old books. Thanks a million.

  4. This is fascinating. I don’t need this, but thoroughly enjoyed it. It was quite well made, excellent narration and photography.

  5. Greetings from another left-handler. Could you inform me about the type of clue and the material you used for the restoration? Thanks in advance.

  6. Thank you very much for this tutorial. My husband has an old bible he absolutely love, but the cover was completely ripped. With this video I was able to recover it!!

  7. Very uninspiring voice over, would have been better with a 'cheerier' voice. But other than that a informative video.
