Joint tacketing

From: James Fairbourn <jlf>
Date: Thursday, January 12, 1995
In the Jan. 9th posting of the distlist, Nancy Edstrom asked if anyone
had tried joint tacketing and what their experience has been.  We've
done a great deal of joint tacketing to repair leatherbound books in our
library's circulating collection.  Performed properly, joint tacketing
will not interfere with a book's ability to open.  The repair can be
hidden or camouflaged well enough to go entirely unnoticed.  It's tough
enough to take the use (and abuse) that circulating books receive.  With
proficiency, the entire procedure can be performed in under 30 minutes.
The bottom line is it's a dang good repair!  Try it, you'll like it!
