I was taught to line spines with a layer of japanese tissue, cut slightly
wider and shorter than the spine itself and pasted on and pounded down
with a stippling brush at the same time as pasting up the spine, and after
the book block is thoroughly dry, add a starched cambric lining, no taller
than the japanese tissue lining but wide enough to overlap onto the boards
1/2 inch on each side.
