2-205: Correct Slanted Book Spines: Advanced
How to Correct Slanted Book Spines: Advanced
Slanted book spines occur when books are kept in a slanted position over a long period of time and the humidity and heat make the adhesive relax and then re-form in the new shape.
This is an advanced method of repairing slanted book spines that also accomplishes re-lining the spine and strengthening it with new materials. This method only works for books with intact covers.
