Hello! Just to let you all know how The Horse and the War is getting on. Well, as you can probably guess by the title, it’s finished! It took some time, but I am really pleased with it. Looking at the photographs you’ll probably wonder what all the fuss is about. It doesn’t look that different from before? Well, maybe that is the sign of a job well done. I’d say The Horse and the War is now fit for another hundred years of reading! Well chuffed!
The repaired spine. Just a little of the new cover fabric can be seen.
Repairs to pages and new sewing inside.
The cover repaired and touched up without obviously altering the book’s original appearance.
