Restoring a Newspaper with linen

Newspaper print is notoriously prone to wrinkling (Photo 1) and ages very rapidly due to the low quality paper used. Over time the paper also becomes very brittle and will fall apart when handled. This example shows a page from the Houston Post which a client brought in for restoration for sentimental reasons rather than for any historical significance and dates from 1939. During the process the paper becomes very wet during mounting and de-acidification (Photo 2)  but finally after drying (Photos 3 & 4) the newspaper is ready for framing. We undertake this kind of work for around $75.
