  • How to remove sticky glue from book with matte paper.

I have a 1st edition cat in the hat that was taped with duct tape. I have scraped some of the harder glue off but can’t scrape of the sticky glue. It is matte paper so adding water lifts the bottom layer.
Is there a video I could watch to help me with this?  I couldn’t add a phot no matter how small I made it.

Tape is so horrible. I am afraid that the adhesive has likely bonded with the paper and there is no way to remove it without damage. What I do in situations like this is to try to replace the damaged area with images photocopied onto some flexible paper. I use Sekishu but sometimes I have to tape it to more substantial paper for it to make it through the copier.

Best of luck!
