Sample text

If the book you are pulling is of the tight back variety with raised bands, it is often possible to cut off the bands which will also assist in the separating of the sections. All dismantling or pulling of books should be carried out with care, for a ripped section can easily occur, and is usually the result of a string in the middle of the section that has been overlooked. Naturally, if you attempt to separate one section from another without cutting the strings first the pages will tear. Having removed all the string from your sections the book is ready for resewing but two things may be necessary first.

This leaves a small stub in between the first two sections. The endpaper is sewn on when the section is attached during the normal sewing of the book. This method is most commonly used when new cloth books are being bound, although it has been used for many different bindings for many years. I find it pleasing to have a single endpaper for the actual 'paste down' when I am binding a leather book. Although I may have other endpages sewn on previously I always stick on one folded sheet to act as the final endpaper to be pasted onto the board.

Be careful not to tighten the bar adjusters so that the cords snap; it is all too easy to do this. You need the cords just tight enough to keep the sewing firm. So now you have your sewing press with its cords in the right places and nicely tight. You may start to sew the book from either end, but I, personally, like to start at the back and finish with the front. Therefore the book should be turned upside down and you take the last section of the book and place it on the press with the top to your left.
