That's a lot of work with a bonefolder, but that's how I do everything now. I read somewhere (can't remember where now) that you can lay a piece of heavy foam over your leather/pva/form and put it in ...

You really need to try and clamp the text block closer to the spine so that you can attack it with a hammer to obtain the correct backing shape. It is easier said than done and you need to practice on ...

I can't think of any glues or pastes that DON"T shrink as they dry. The water that evaporates out has to have taken up the majority of the original volume. (ever left a pot of PVA open til it dr ...
