Making sections, sewing and endpapers

Groups of four leaves were joined together by folding the guards around each other.

Each section was pre-pierced using a template

The groups (known as sections) were pierced through the fold  then sewn together, over six linen tapes. The old endpapers were reinforced  and sewn on.
