I've successfully covered my books with fabric using this method

1) line fabric with iron-on fusible web - the lightest weight kind.
2) PVA - cover the board with the PVA, then place the lined fabric on top.

I make the fabric lining 5mm short of the fabric all around, i.e. the edges of the turn-ins are only fabric. This is to be sure that the turn-ins are totally glued onto the board - just incase the lining should ever part from the fabric.

I had to add my 2 cents as I just stumbled upon a great glue for this application. It's called contact cement, made by the same people who make super glue. It comes in a little glass bottle with a brush. It worked GREAT. It formed a tight bond that set really quickly and it didn't seep through the fabric. The only draw back is the smell. You definitely need good ventilation while you're working.

Now that I think about it, it might be the same thing as rubber cement. Different brand, different name maybe?
