It's these little blighters that caused all the trouble: the spines and hinges. If you've never made a hardbound book before it will sound like madness to say that it took us two whole days to get this sussed out. But we're there. As I sit here, I'm surrounded by piles of half-wrapped folio board and stacks of 'u-flaps' drying. It's 11pm and I've put in a 14 hour day folding cloth over awkward corners and wiping glue up and down my arms to keep if off my copper folder and so my precious book cover.

We're getting somewhere but it could still be tight.

More soon.
