If you were making a blank book, using the first and last pages of the book as your endsheets (and perhaps then covering them with a nice decorative paper to finish them off) would add the most additional strength, because those pages are actually stitched and glued to the spine. But since your first and last pages contain content (including the important TOC on the first page), you’ll want to use paper specific to this task. I decided to use MAKE’s original wraparound cover as my endsheet for the front cover board.
Doing so keeps the paper seam away from the edge of the book and covered by the endsheets. Brush the first fore edge with glue, fold the turnover, press it firmly, and smooth out any wrinkles or air bubbles. Use your bone folder to tap each of the corners to make them a little blunt. Removing the sharp edges will help protect the book from wear as it slides on and off shelves. Lay sheets of scrap paper between the cover boards and your book block of signatures, and press under heavy weights overnight.
