The 4 Gospels, leather jointed end papers and doublers, first design of the 4 done.
Now that the turn-ins have been done the first design is complete. The text carries on from the first doubler to the last and reads as follows... IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD AND THE WORD WAS WITH GOD AND THE WORD WAS GOD
All the words are imperfect apart from the last GOD as nothing is perfect but God!
With a normal book the doubler is usually applied towards the end of the binding and finishing. In this case the doublers are in place half way through.... the phase is to attach a second set of boards.
This second set of boards will support a third set of boards, sounds complicated? Yes I think it will be.
