this is my glue brush. i bought it for my first ever bookbinding class, which i took during my last year of college, which was (oohboy) 15 years ago.
my glue brush has held up pretty well. it’s the only brush i use for gluing, and when i have pARTies, i make my friends use the cheap $1 hardware store brushes and i rarely share my brush. the metal around the brush head is rusting a bit, and the head is starting to come loose from the handle… a little super glue might solve that last problem. i will take drastic measures, if necessary, to keep this brush in one piece!
