Tintin books: how best to preserve old copies

#1 · Posted: 24 Mar 2005 12:20
I treated myself to a rare Golden Press edition of Destination Moon from America and was wondering if anyone had any ideas of a good way to keep it in good condition?

All I can really think to do is keep it in a plastic envelope or something

I would do the same. But I would recommend a durable cover that isn't permanently attached to the book. I'd agree with you on the plastic envelope, but if you're good at maintaining relatively tough paper, that could work, too.

Put it in a safe and loose the key!
Or just enjoy th book! It's up to you!

I would say keep it out of sunlight, definitely. My English copies of Golden Fleece and Blue Oranges are kept with my other Tintin books, but well out of the way of sunlight.
