Issues in old books and traditional re-binding

When the pages have turned very brittle and there are tears, lost areas and old repairs with incompatible and damaging materials, it is not that simple to mend and rebind a book with traditional sewing technique.

Some binding procedures that cannot be performed properly or at all are:

  1.  We cannot trim the edges.
  2. We can not round the spine.
  3. Using needle on a brittle paper is not always easy.
  4. The handling and steps have to be kept minimum.
  5. Use of glue has to be careful both in quality and technique.
