Leather Rebacking

Leather Rebacking
2013 - Washington, D.C.
Traditional leather rebacking techniques for both tight and hollow back books are demonstrated. Leather rebacking utilizes thinned and colored leather to repair broken joints and reattach loose boards and spines. Facing and lifting an original tight back spine, adding a new spine lining, paring, coloring and application of repair leathers are all shown. Topics of discussion include various adhesives, leather dyes, surface coatings, and tools. Reid-Cunningham also provided as his 'hand-out' a comprehensive description of the process, as well as an extensive bibliography available here.
