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: Your text is due no later than one week prior to your ship by date

•For plaques: Your text is due as soon as you order

Please check your Etsy messages regularly to approve drafts.

Unfortunately text sent later than stated above or not approved in a timely manner may result in a delayed ship by date.
There are two reasons I use the exposed binding for my rebound books.
1. Often the old fabric that covers the spine is too fragile
2. Proper technique. 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 requires perfectly matching the original spine's width which dictates the page count. If the new text block doesn't fit the old spine the way it should, the book will not open and function correctly long term.

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.
