I needed to repair a very old book (1685) because it had some tears (no covers or spine either so i made new) and worn edges I wanted to preserve..being that this book is so old, the color of everything is very dark, aged and worn. So when I put this tape in place, it stood out like a sore thumb..I was not happy at all with results due to the appearance..then, being the crafty person that I am, I got out my distressing ink by Tim Holtz and lightly rubbed over the tape to age the color and appearance.. that worked for me! I would say this document tape is great for more modern pages or books and documents but if you want to do repairs to something 300 plus yrs old, be prepared to go the extra mile..I am satisfied now.:-) oh and they do need to stop using glue on back side to hold it in place inside the box..those areas are not usable later.
