Subject: Faded ink and deacidification

Faded ink and deacidification

From: Judith Murphy <jamurphy>
Date: Thursday, January 25, 1996
I have a Mexican colonial document from 1778. The ink is fading in
various places (several different inks are used in the document).I
was wondering if it would be safe to deacidify the document or if it
will contribute to the ink fading more. If it is not safe to
deacidify, would encapsulation still be the recommended option?
