In today’s video I show you how I re-cover my Wordsworth Classics Editions using crafting paper. I’m not sure what these books are made of but the black paint tends to chip off and some of them have some terrible stock photo images on the covers. I actually like some of them though. One of the covers for Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is pretty good but you’d still have the chipping problem.
I decided to create new covers for my copies of these books because, let’s face it, the price point of these books is too good to pass up!
I use Santoro paper to re-cover my books which is 200gsm so it bends nicely but still strengthens the book cover.
