Busy Binding a Book

Managed after a long while to get all the pages repaired and the old glue and bits still stuck on sorted out and off.

Reinforced end pages cut out and sewn on to the tapes.

The hard bit is to not get it too tight as the extra thickness of the postcards and the age of the book means that I don't want to mess about too much with it.

Building up slowly and only slightly down on one side but that can be compensated for as time goes on.

Last few pages to be sewn in.

Finished the sewing.  Now to level out between the tapes and put mull right over it to hold it all together with flaps to glue into the boards.
