Thank you so muchstardustgrass😊, I must have walked past Forbidden Planet dozens of times without noticing it, and it sounds right up my alley! And I keep meaning to pop into the big Foyles, next on my list when I have an hour (or three) I think!
The board-slotted book from the Institute of Fine Arts library that we posted about last week is getting quite the beauty treatment! The missing portion of its spine piece was built up with layers of Japanese paper, wheat starch paste, and a replacement false raised band, and now we’re using cast-composite film to help visually integrate the repair with the original spine piece. More cast-composite repairs will be added to the hinges, tail, and corners of the boards.
