Re: Help with Sketchbook

Are the hinges (inner and outer torn, or still intact). If intact, simply
follow the instructions given in the book repair manual (hinge tighting I)
at <http://www.philobiblon.com/bkrepair/BookRepair.html>. It's an easy,
straight forward, and effective repair. If not, you may need to do a bit
more. The book repair manual is quiet good, especially for the basics.
