In this video I convert a soft cover book to a hard cover book. The book is in sound condition and the paper is good quality. The idea came from a question about converting a modern reprint of an historical cookbook that was Perfect bound with soft covers to something that would not look out of place in a living museum setting (to the eyes of a none book person anyway). Because the original binding is good condition it is left alone. New boards are attached using the split board method using the original covers as the inserts to the split boards.

The #DASBookbinding Channel is the perfect starting point for learning #bookbinding. It covers foundation skills, simple projects, technical methods, materials and more advanced bookbinding projects. The videos are presented in a tutorial or lesson fashion, which I hope are easy to follow. The knowledge presented is based on traditional techniques which can be used to create traditional books or as a foundation to quality journalling or creative artists' books. The best way to find what you are looking for is the DAS Bookbinding YouTube Channel guide.https://dasbookbinding.com/2019/12/14/youtube-channel/
