Beautiful book but severe spine roll and tape/tape stain on back cover.
First I had to remove the cover and remove the tape which was on back cover and inside back cover.  Tape staining was very stubborn but it was minimized. Tear was sealed using Japanese heat set tissue.  Each page was individually pressed and since the pages were a slight bit tan, each page was de-acidified to neutralize and buffer paper.  Spine roll removed.  Cover re-assembled using original staples and book pressed intact.

Nice, solid books found in an estate sale.  A little dirty, creased and rolled spines. Pencil overlay on the top of the cover.  Basic cleaning and a good pressing makes them whole and new looking again.

This was favorite book of a customer and he wanted it to look new again. The top corner of the front cover had been torn and someone put scotch tape over it on inside cover.  Since I was going to do a full restoration I repaired all other tears and did some extra color touch along creases.

I love Golden Age More Fun!  Same as Detectives and Action...DC Publishing in the 40's used better paper quality and covers are soft, supple with a beautiful matte finish.

This book was tired, worn and very dirty front and back covers and extremely dirt along the spine rolled margin.  Cover was dry cleaned in all white areas and cleaning pad used over entire book.  Rolled margin of all interior pages carefully dry cleaned to remove soiling.  Cover washed, light bleached using sunlight and spot bleached using hydrogen peroxide.  Cover pressed flat, spine reinforced using layers of Japanese tissue.  Fills along spine and top and bottom of cover as well as some worn areas along margins.  Tears sealed along margins.  Color touch at fills and mends.  Each page individually pressed flat, spine roll removed. Restored cover re-assembled to interior using original staples and book pressed flat.
