Re: [BKARTS] Use Bookpress on Comic Books to get wrinkles/folds out?



Thanks to everyone who gave me suggestions.

I followed up (by calling Randall Scott) or will try each of them!

Hello,

I would suggest that you contact Randall Scott (scottr@xxxxxxx) at =
Michigan
State University.  They maintain one of the largest collections of comic
books in any library in the US, and he has written a book and several
articles on the subject of comic librarianship.

He should be able to help with conversation issues related to comic =
books.

Subject: Use Bookpress on Comic Books to get wrinkles/folds out?

Hello,

First of all, thanks to all of you who contribute to this listserv! I've
been lurking for a year now and have learned so much. Call me crazy, but =
I
find it very relaxing to sit back on the weekends and go through the
accumulated emails I get from here.

This is the first time I have asked a question.

I have a customer who has several comic books that are wrinkled from =
use. No
damage due to water, just everyday use and he is wanting to sell them on
e-bay, etc.

I've searched the archives and either use the wrong keyword of 'comic' =
to
get any results or this question hasn't been asked before. Although I
enjoyed one posting that reads:

No, it is preferable to use the humerus. It can be very disarming.

R*

Any suggestions and information on how to press the wrinkles and folds =
out
will be appreciated. Seems to me it should be straightforward, which =
means
it probably isn't!

Thank You,

Connie Peabody
