Re: [BKARTS] how to remove ink stamps from edges?



Lynne: You could carefully sand the old stamp off... provided, of course, there is no decorative foredge treatment that would be ruined by the sanding. Of course, you could also leave the stamp as a testament to the book's tenacity and interesting journey... sort of like an old hockey scar.

I would appreciate suggestions from Book Arts people as to how to remove old library stamps from the head and tail edges of a book. (I haven't nicked the book - it was sold off as 'surplus to > requirements')
Thanks
