And now, back to the book block: Take your loosely woven cloth and cut a swatch that is just shy of the length of your spine, and wide enough that it will wrap your block with approximately .5" on either side of the spine.After the initial gluing has dried, take this strip and place it along the spine. Apply glue (not as liberally as before!) again so that it seeps through the cloth, but only along the spine. Take care that the glue doesn't get on the front or back of the book block. Again, set it aside to dry.
