Journey Into Mystery #83

Previously restored book when it came to me.  First thing I noticed was the very faded cover which is unfortunate as there is really nothing I can do about that. It was a bad job so it was screaming to be healed!  Tried to undo the resto as best as possible w/o losing any pieces.  Needed to remove some old color touch and piece fills that did not match up.  Full restoration.  Cleaning, humidification, pressing, spine rebuilding, pieces added and color touch, interior and exterior. CGC graded it a 7.0 MP and if it weren't for the very faded cover, I do think it would have graded higher.

This book was nice to begin with but with some TLC in cleaning and pressing, all the defects disappear.

CGC grade:  5.5

Amazing Fantasy 15

 

This is an already restored book and client wanted to fix the tape pull.

The surface of the cover (and inside cover) needed to be carefully prepared and reinforced for proper color touch.

SPRING!

SPRING!

Wow...time does fly by!

Last post was October when the temperatures were still warm but the days were getting shorter.  Then the holidays run us all over and somehow we survive the family gatherings and the pocketbook shortage!   Well January 2015 was pleasant here in the Northeast and I could just feel that if it stays this warm, I would be teeing it up by early March.

NOT!  Boston broke the record of all record keeping since 1872 as the snowiest winter in history.  The pattern was every Wednesday and Sunday (for 8 weeks) where we endured 3 blizzards or 2+ feet or more in 3 weeks.  Then subsequent weeks were 12-18 inches not to mention the highs in the low 20's for temperatures!

Well at 6:45 pm this evening it became SPRING but guess what?  It's snowing here in Boston and there is still plenty of white stuff covering my lawn.  At this rate I won't be on the links anytime soon.

I grace all of you with this beautiful painting by my 17 year old son to usher in the new season.  It is spectacular, full of song and promise of some good weather moving forward.  Dominic had a prolific winter and why not?  We were inside all the time but I enjoyed watching him produce one masterpiece after another.  To view his entire portfolio go to www.DominiCreations.com and enjoy the masterful works of art.

Then you can keep scrolling to see what I have been up to lately. Give me the weekend to get all the projects up.  This takes time.  I wish I could photograph everything but there are a few nice examples.  Work has been steady and always enjoyable.  Feel free to contact me via email if you have something to PRESS, CONSERVE or RESTORE for Certification or simply for your collection and posterity.  

To my fellow New Englanders....this too shall pass.   All the rest of you across the globe, enjoy this next season and happy collecting!
