I have a book I want to alter, but the spine is damaged (the fabric it's covered with - buckram? - is peeling away and revealing the webbing underneath.)  Any suggestions for how to repair or strengthen this?  I'd prefer not to cover it completely, which would obscure the title, but will if I need to (I guess I can always put the title back on in some fashion.)

OK, revise that - the cover is paper, not cloth.  Help!

The best site for info on altered books is the altered book archives yahoo group or altered books yahoo group. They have reams of info on how to fix spines and other inspirational ideas etc. Well worth joining! Happy Crafting, Chris
PS. www.lisavollrath.com is worth checking out too.
