Thread Name: Tech: Repairing Songbook Bindings
Subject: RE: Tech: Repairing Songbook Bindings
The problem with using ordinary paper is the increased 'swell' at the spine. It will work for 1 or 2 pages but anything more than that and the book won't fit inside its covers. There's also the chance that the new joint will put extra stress on what remains of the binding hurrying its total failure.

Personally, I'd only use Helen's technique on someone else's book.
