    Thanks for doing this. – I enjoy book repair and have been doing it as needed for about 15 years. I am looking forward to picking up some useful tips.

    Our students in elementary school seem to love our Garfield comic books, by Jim Davis. The difficult copies are more than an inch thick (appropriately called “the Fat Cat 3-pack”), and it’s almost impossible to find them as hardbound copies. How do I keep a book like this from splitting apart? For some of these in the past, I rebound them as spiral books; I’ve also stapled one together, but it was less than an inch think, and could fit into my super-duper stapler.

    Any ideas or suggestions?

      Liz,
      Our blog post that will be released soon titled Rebuilding Broken Books-Part 2 should help. You may need to remove the entire contents from the cover, use Norbond to attach them to a strip of double-stitched binder tape, and glue that into the cover. Reviewing photos in the blog post should clarify the process.
      Let me know how it works,
      John
