Re: [BKARTS] Removing adhesive from spine success and thank you

Be very careful using any solvents on paper and especially photographs. A local framer used a solvent liquid made for the trade to remove glue or rubber cement from the back of a scrap book full of old photographs only to find that a day later the soaked through areas had destroyed the silver of the photos. I had a good month's job scanning and repairing the missing areas in photoshop and then printing quadtones to match as closely as possible the tones of the old photographs.
