For Jenny

As you can see this Bible had a curved spine. Unfortunately it was curved in the wrong direction! What you can't see is that it was FULL of dog ears (folds at the corners and elsewhere on a page). I think I had gone through a rather large part of the Bible, page by page, repairing these dog ears before I finally came across a page without any.

As you can see we were able to restore the Bible to a much more usable state. We were able to make the spine curve in the right direction, get all the dog ears out, and put a nice crimson colored goatskin on it. You can see it is very floppy. This job was finished in December, 2010.
