The Secret Garden

A client commissioned to repair her sister-in-law's favorite childhood book, The Secret Garden. Much loved and read, the book was no longer readable with its broken spine and barely attached cover. In order to repair it, I dyed a piece of bookcloth to exactly match the color of the original cloth. I then used the dyed cloth to reback the book keeping both covers intact. The end result is a book that can again be read and reread.
