In general I use Japanese repair tissue, wheat paste, and heat-set tissue or repair tape to repair paper tears.

Over the next few posts I’ll cover the basic information about:

  • Japanese repair tissue
  • heat set tissue
  • document repair tape
  • clear plastic tape
  • repair adhesives 
  • the difference between glue and paste
  • pva glue
  • wheat paste (including recipes)

These repair methods will be applicable to any paper tear in a book whether its a paperback or hardcover.
