Re: [BKARTS] wire loop in bidnding (was: odd things that one finds in a book)


Excellent photos!  It seems to be a rugged installation and perhaps it
was meant to fasten the book to something like the old monastery tomes
were fastened to a desk with chains.

Your photo also shows that terrible mull that was used to fasten book
covers.  In my restorations I use cotton or linen cloth and/or tapes
or linen string.
