The page count given in listings counts both the front and back of each paper, not individual sheets.

I offer two types of exposed spine bindings, Coptic for smaller light weight books and Raised Support for larger, heavier books. These exposed spine binding offer flexibility and beautiful design options for rebound books. Due to the nature of rebinding old books, the original spine must be destroyed in most cases.
•For guestbooks/journals: Text must be submitted no later than one week prior to your ship by date

•For plaques: Text must be submitted within 24 hours of your order.

Please check your Etsy messages regularly to approve drafts.

Unfortunately text sent later than stated above may result in a delayed ship by date.
Often the old fabric that covers the spine is too fragile to keep. Additionally most old books have rounded spines rather than flat. To properly rebind these old books, it's necessary to make a new rounded spine, not a flat spine. This method also dictates the page count whereas an exposed spine allows choice.

I offer exposed spines for my rebound work due to its beauty combined with practicality and most of all to ensure you receive a rebound book that will last.
