The Horse and the War … continued …

Had another go at The Horse and the War last week, and progress had definitely been made. Not quite ready to ‘case it in’ as we wanted the glue to dry before going any further. (By ‘we’ I mean Matt Edwards and me under his tuition.) Nevertheless, it’s already looking much better than it did. All the pages have been repaired and sewn back together using a sewing frame, the end pages have also been sewn in, and the spine repaired. The spine repairs have been done on the inside of the cover, so as to avoid altering the book’s outward appearance. Really pleased so far! Just about summing up the courage to have a go on my own. Maybe not on anything precious though aye?! TTFN.
