Re: [BKARTS] conservation consultation, please



Zoe,

Please don't use buckram in "Restoring" this paperback. A book should be
restored, if at all possible, with the same material used to make it in the
first place. If the books is valuable, have it restored by a professional.
Paperbacks should be retored with paper and the new material should be
incorporated into the old so as to be  congruent.
