After asking for thoughts on the covers I had done and listening to this advice, I am going to use this cover for my front and back cover and to make the book look more professional, I will be using greyboard to stick the cover on, and then binding my book pages to the greyboard by sticking the end pages to the inside of the greyboard and although the spine of the pages of the book will not be glued to the spine of the greyboard, this should be fine as I have spoken to Rose about this and she says that this is how it is usually done in this case. I also asked her about the best kind of glue to use to bind my book and she said that the most suitable would be PVA glue, but I will be careful not to use too much as I am very conscious that I do not want to put too much on and for the paper to bubble. I will be borrowing a bone folder to make sure that all of my folds are perfectly straight and this will avoid any untidiness, especially as I want to get the cover as flat to the greyboard.
