When I got to work today I found that everything I was supposed to do today was already done and there was nothing for me to do and no reason for me to stay there. So I went shopping and taught myself all about gilding page edges. Very amusingly, the first thing you have to treat the edges with is a paste called Fontenay to seal up the paper so it doesn't absorb too much adhesive.

Naturally, I had neglected to have any on hand so while the pages were still a little wet, I've been separating them and inadvertently reread the book:

43.


Mine looked worse than that so you can see why I decided to experiment on it- it needed rebinding anyway!
