NOTES for 20th & 21st century publishers Bibles


Modern Flat Spine Bibles - With use these flat spines become concave. If the spine is adhesive bound then we do not attempt to restore the original flatness, as this may cause major structural damage to the adhesive.


If the spine is sewn then we can restore more of the lost flatness. However in both cases with use, the spine will once again revert to it's concave shape.


Modern Round Spine Bibles - In both cases we can restore the majority of the round, especially with the sewn spine.
