Repairing abused pages


I have reviewed any appropriate course videos but still find I want to ask this question. I am dealing with several rather older (close to 100 years) books. Each had several or even numerous pages that are completely loose, ragged outside edge, torn, generally abused. See pics. To “mend” these I first think of Japanese tissue. My concern is that even resorting to a “less is more” approach, I am hesitant because I fear adding too much thickness when there are several pages in a row. I have not encountered this before so proceeding carefully. At the moment I only have Sekishu in house. Would I do better to bite the bullet and obtain some 12gsm hinging tissue rather than the 30gsm Sekishu? Thank you.

    Oh, I'd love to know this too! I have a few illustrated plates that are in similar condition.

      When I have something that needs a lot of edge repair I would definitely go for the 12 gsm hinging tissue. Or even possibly use heat-set tissue ( I don't sell that, but you can get it through Talas).
