So that book, the art journal that I've been working in? Yeah the one that was pissing me off? I did the rebind already, it didn't take to long and I removed some unworked signatures- 4 of them to be exact. Leaving me with only 3 untouched signatures left. I think that the real issue was that the thread stretched a lot. I've used the brown linen before and never had an issue but I've never had a book so loose before. Of course I over stuff the book with glued in pages and layers of acrylic making the books about twice as thick as when I started. I dind't really epect there to be an issue with it at all. but there was.
