How to remove pencil impressions/indentations?


I have a book where the previous owner wrote in it using a mechanical pencil and with some force. The result is that even when I erase all the pencil, I still have deep impressions. Is there any way to ‘lift’ or help restore the paper, or at least reduce this indentation?

You can humidify (get it damp but not wet) the paper and gently press out the indentations by rubbing them carefully with a teflon folder (or anything that can carefully press). Consider ironing. Test first. Don't use heat near waxed paper.
