    Funky-
    Thanks for this link. I will check it out, but looks pretty helpful from the little I've seen so far.

    This thread should perhaps be in our tutorial forum?

    I think it would be appropriate there.

    It looks they took the link down. Did anybody by chance save a copy of this they can send me? I know a few things about book repair, but i'd be interested in more info.

    Anyone have any preferences for archival adhesives? The link mentions several, but I was wondering if anyone has experience using them. I was taking out my new S/L Desperation that I got for Christmas to take pics, and the inside tray has apparently come unglued.

    Thanks for any suggestions!

    I am noticing mine is doing the same. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Looks like this Link got taken down again. Anyone have any idea on how to do this?

    I have taken a 440 grit sanding block and lightly pulled it across the top of the page edges. I usually add extra card stock between the pages and cover so as to not touch it. I use light to medium pressure and go away from the spine only. It will take old dirty blocks and make them look new again.

    This doesn't help with foxing or remainder marks as those usually go beyond the surface of the block.
