I have frequently obtained paper items which were almost hopelessly damaged, but had pictures etc. that were in need of saving. Shown are three examples where I cut out parts that were undamaged and then pasted them to other areas( upon a sheet of heavy construction paper) and then put into a protective sleeve. Keeps them safe and is appealing to the eye. kw028b_edited-1.jpg

Great idea...

I've done that a few times myself in such cases over many years.

Better to save something than nothing at all.

Just a suggestion, but if you haven't already, mark down the name and date of the publication they are cut from. A while back I picked up an old scrapbook with pasted articles that I wish I knew where they came from.
