Repair an old book spine?
I like to read, and I also like really old books. Lately I've been visiting garage sales and buying old books to read. What I've noticed though is a lot of these books have spines that are worn down and are barely holding the book together. I've repaired some of them by using librarian's tape, but this doesn't work well on hard-cover books, and looks kind of ugly on paper-back books.
Do you have any suggestions on repairing the spines of these books, or any suggestion on where to learn how to remove the old spines and rebind these books?
