Default Document restorer sought

Dear All,

I have been lucky enough to buy a lovely poster that is starting to tear at the creases and has other condition issues.

Would anyone be able to point me towards someone whom I can pay to restore it or at least stabilise it

Thanks in advance

Although not a restorer, a read through the CCI Notes may help and give you some ideas.

https://www.canada.ca/en/conservatio...ute-notes.html

The paper section is down near the bottom.

Jordan,

Good to see you on the weekend.

Thanks for the tip but honestly at the moment I would prefer to pay someone, I am slowly slipping into the vortex of the spring tillage and planting season so time is my enemy.

I want to get it done and I know I don't have the time to do it myself, too many projects, Im bad at that.

Thanks for the input

Default restorer

I have a 0900 meeting with a museum studies student. He did some damage arresting for me on a paper map sheet. I'll give him your contact info.

Thank you Terry and other who have sent messages.

I completely forgot to put up the poster itself, silly me. It is about 18 inches by 3 ft.

Neschen Filmoplast is your friend for repairing tears. It’s non acidic, so won’t brown with time (as I understand it), hence it's good for rare books etc.

I use Filmoplast P90 for the backs or hinges, and P for anything with text or diagrams. Both are made of paper, but P is incredibly thin, so it goes almost transparent when stuck down.

Book restorers use a tool called a whale bone (I’m guessing it’s not really made of whale any more) to smooth and scrape across the tape, and it makes a huge difference to how transparent it becomes. You may be able to do similar with a ruler or plastic butter knife, although if it’s something you really care about you may want to pick one up with the tape.

Filmoplast P90 on the hinge, P on a tear up the middle of the page.

Default Poster Restoration

Robin. Just seeing this thread now and not sure if you're still looking for someone to restore/stabilize the poster. If yes, there's a fellow in Port Perry, Ontario (Lake Scugog) who has become well know for his poster restorations. Perhaps give him a call. The link below will take you to his website.

Dear Terry, thank you for that lead.

It is on hold for the minute but in the pipeline as it were.
