Re: [BKARTS] relatively urgent question



fyi - i'm no longer curious as to why the tapes would not glue or
possible remedies, as i cannot see this as an effective method to
recreate, faithful be damned. (because, when they did stick for a wee
two minutes, i could see it would never open well)

i cut off the tapes and finished with a bradel, which looks just
fine. indeed, it looks very fine.. and the book opens.

thx.

(had a question)
ready to glue tapes to insides of boards.

They WILL NOT stick. i'm using PVA glue. I tried another glue as well
- a low acid pva variation which is much more readily water soluble.
Neither work.

i'm considering re-thinking the hinges - cutting off the remainders
of the tapes and making a paper pocket (souflet) to glue the spine to
the cover's spine.  Before i do, however, i'd love to know if anyone
has any suggestions or has run into this problem before? i've used
this tape before, but always lacing into the boards, which of course
doesn't present much of a problem in terms of whether the tapes stick
or not as they're embedded...

urgent? dunno - frustrating, for sure.

any suggestions most welcome...
