Great example of tape and tape stain removal.  
14 pieces of tape were removed from this book by repeated solvent applications and removing tape carrier and gummy residue.  Cover then humidified and pressed flat.
Spine reinforced using Japanese tissue, tears mended and nicks filled.  Color touch at spine and margins to restore color.  Book structurally sound and esthetically beautiful.
