This is a great result. The binding alone is worth the effort of doing for such a great book.

Did you do this for love or for money? LOL! Cheesy Either way it would have to have been for an awful lot of whichever it was! Goodness, you've done such a tremendous job rekindling the life in that old book. Wonderful work, I'd love to see more!

Fantastic! Now I want to restore my old books as well but I love them too much to ruin them (which is what I would do if I tried this Sad )
