Restauración de dibujo a tinta china, lápiz de grafito, acuarela y gouache sobre papel. Dibujo original del humoriosta gráfico Cesc, con oxidación muy intensa debida al paspartú. Limpieza en seco, acuosa, desacidificación, blanqueo solar y retoque.
Not uncommon to find waste material as part of a binding (parchment manuscripts, for instance), but quite much rare when the previous and original binding is part of the boards layers of the current recycled binding!
The outer and visible binding belonged first to a former book, and the hidden binding, to the current, one... crazy!
Some projects are extremely complex regarding the ethical professional decision making, and this is certainly one of the toughests!
Rather than trimming the original beautiful bindings with marbled edges, some facsimile dust-jackets were made to protect the books, that were also restored preserving all their features.
