It happens that by negligence a child or an adult can tear a book.
For a small repair, you can use a painting tape (it is sold in stationery stores).
The advantage of the painting tape over the tape is the fabric base, which does not allow the layer of glue to impregnate (in time) the reverse side of this tape, which can lead to gluing of the pages.
I had to use it twenty years agoScotch tape domestic production, and this problem has arisen constantly. Although the quality of the scotch has improved, but the result will be the same, if you, for example, put it for a long time The book Near a hot battery. Therefore, it is better to use a paint tape.
Attach the torn page to the starting pointHer stay, glue a piece of paint tape with glue and attach it so that it covers the page and part of the binding (it is also possible that he captures a small part of the adjacent page).
There are times when you need to glue togetherpages. Then you can not do without scotch, otherwise part of the text will be unreadable. In this case, glue the entire width of the page with adhesive tape, even if it is not completely broken. If you stop in the middle of the page, then the tape may become unstuck with time, and because of this, the adjacent page can be stuck to this page. Moreover, the page glued entirely, will be much stronger than not pasted to the end of the page.
