Book repair advice requested on #tribandtuesday.
*
I bought this vintage Penguin edition of Passenger to Teheran by Vita Sackville-West earlier in the year from a seller in the UK. The book was published in 1943, and is printed on thin wartime paper, with thin paper covers.
*
Unfortunately, this fragile book suffered damage in transit, and both covers separated from the text block. Surprisingly, most of the spine is still attached.
*
Is there any hope of repairing this? I don’t think that I’m up to the task, but could a professional give this book back its dignity? It’s been sitting flat on a shelf for months, just waiting for help.
*
Swipe through to see the inside of the front cover, the inside and outside of the back cover, and the spine.
*
Thanks for any advice!

A #travelbooks favourite for all those with bookish itchy feet - we loved Antiquariaat Brinkman in Amsterdam. It's a little antique bookshop in the heart of the city, a hideaway stuffed with second hand gems and a serene, quiet atmosphere.

“The Shooting Star by Shivya Nath is a travel book of rare insight and depth... Her travels and her writings are filled with a deeply felt humanism, driven by her own “hero’s quest,” and her thirst for adventure, knowledge, and self-awareness.”
~ Travel blogger Mariellen Ward @breathedreamgo (you’re following all her India adventures, aren’t you?)

I haven’t had a breakthrough with the international publishing of my book yet, but excited to share that this month, it has been featured on @lonelyplanetmagazineindia (thanks @ra_ra_raasta for the heads up); in the inflight magazine of @spicejetairlines (a 5 page spread!) ; and in an exclusive interview on @livemintlounge ☺️ Swipe right to see the features 👉🏼
.
.
But truth be told, what got me really excited was to come back after my little end of the year digital detox to an inbox full of stories and DMs from you guys about reading my book, travelling with it around the world, identifying with it and gifting it to your friends/siblings! .
.
These photos really made my day: 👆🏼by @sumathi_s while hiking in Coorg; 👉🏼 by @atoolfoo at -13 degrees in Arunachal Pradesh; by @shrutibookfairysharma in Lakshadweep; and by @lets.capture.the.world in Rajasthan 👣
.
.
I know I’ve said it before, but I’m really so grateful to the universe for helping my book find its way to the right readers, to fellow bloggers and friends for their support, and to all you guys for your love and encouragement ☺️

If you’re yet to get a copy, Amazon has a special offer today! Link in my profile @shivya .

Crack open the bubbly 🥂This weekend both the @guardian and @bbcfoodprog choose #Zaitoun as one of their best cookbooks of the year! ⁣
⁣
I’m utterly thrilled. It’s such an honour to be included on such stellar lists, sharing delicious food and honest reportage from Palestine.⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Amazon UK have just slashed the book to £8.99 (again!) so take this as a timely reminder that it would make a wonderful Christmas gift 🎁 ⁣Link in my bio xx⁣⁣
