Re: [BKARTS] How to remove end papers safely? [resend]



Jules:

If the endpaper map(s) have no intrinsic value, consider photocopying them and 
using them as endpapers. If done in color, you may even match text paper tint.

Saves a lot of time.

| I am repairing a not-valuable hardcover book published in 1949. The
| cover looks as if it got wet and was eaten by insects. There's not much
| to salvage there, but the end papers are in perfect shape and have maps
| that are important. How do I safely remove the end papers?
