Collection Services Policy and Procedure Manual: Tipping in Pages using Japanese Paper

General Information

Tipping in a Single Page Using a Japanese Paper Tissue Hinge

Suggested Equipment & Supplies:

·  Adhesive (PVA)

·  Scalpel

·  Bone Folder

·  Paper cutter

·  Small glue brush

·  Ruler

·  Wax paper

·  Japanese paper (Sekishu, Kizukishi, or Mulberry)

·  Pressboard

·  Light weight

Procedure:

    1. If the page is missing, you may have to order a replacement through inter-library loan. Assuming you have the page in hand match the page weight with the correct Japanese paper.

    1. Tear a strip of the Japanese paper approximately 1/2 inch wide and somewhat longer (not more than one inch) than the page to be tipped in.

    1. Place the tip-in page between two sheets of wax paper with approximately 1/8 inch of the inner margin showing. Run a thin line of adhesive along this margin. Remove the wax paper.

    1. Place the Japanese paper strip over the glued edge and rub gently with your finger or a bone folder to secure the attachment. Place the glued tip-in between two new pieces of wax paper and under a flat board and light weight to dry.

    1. Using the scalpel trim the excess of the Japanese paper strip off the top and bottom.

    1. Fold the tissue over the edge of the paper to create a V hinge.

    1. Place the fold of the hinge into the inner margin of the book and mark the sheet.

    1. Trim the sheet using a paper cutter or a ruler and scalpel.

    1. Place the creased hinge between two sheets of wax paper so that only the creased area is exposed for gluing. Run a thick strip of adhesive along the folded edge.

    1. Position the folded edge (hinge) as far into the book's inner margin as possible.

    1. Using the bone folder gently rub the hinge to adhere to the adjacent page. Place wax paper into the inner margin on either side of the tip-in to protect adjacent sheets from moisture and oozing glue.

    1. Allow to dry overnight.
