Default Restored dust jackets

Posted By: Max Weder

In a post which might drive the other forum crazy, here's a dust jacket of Johnson's Who Who 1933 which I had professionally restored.

Any thoughts or guesses as to the areas that were restored? It's apparent when you examine the dust jacket closely and in person, but I'm not sure it's easy to tell from the scan



I'll try and dig up the "before" photo, if I still have it on my home computer

Off the bat, looks like the top right corner...and top left. This is fun.

Maybe we should try this with restored CARDS...then we'd be talkin' apoplexy on the other side

The Who's Who was restored by restorers who do work for the Vancouver and Seattle Art galleries.

I'll next post the dust jackets I've simply scanned the beat up copies and restored with photoshop. It's scary what can be done. Now, if I could only find some 1920's dust jacket paper

Restoration.

Not baseball, but for some of our 100 year old brewery lithographs...

We've spent 4x what we've paid for a piece to have it professionally restored so that it won't rot out for the ages and disappear forever. Of course, these pieces are the only one's known to exist.....they aren't one out of 350 known to exist, with maybe five with perfect corners stuck in a piece of plastic so the minute "condition" of a piece elevates it to some higher level over a piece with (at least my) naked eye couldn't tell you the difference between a "7", "8" or "9"...

I remember getting into a conversation at the Hartford (CT) Paper show and hearing someone mention that he's very grateful that the emphera world has not been taken over by the "slabbing" mentality.

If you can restore a piece without altering it's original finish, I don't see any reason for not doing it (with complete disclosure of course if it's to be resold).
