    Never had a problem with it. I've even let it sit for 10 minutes on a particularly nasty sticker.

    Fair enough. Maybe I've applied too much, or perhaps rubbed too vigorously *insert joke here*.

    It may depend on the type of paper the jacket is made of, ie glossy vs matte.

    When I use Goo Gone I apply it to a paper towel, not the dust jacket itself.

    That's what I do, but it probably has more to do with the finish being matte or not well laminated.

    I apply it directly to the jacket. Most of the jackets I have are the glossy type, but I tested it on a Sub Press DJ and it didn't harm it at all. I have removed several stickers from CD books I have bought online with no problem.

    Finally got off my lazy ass and took some photos. They are huge and this forum doesn't seem to support the timg tag, so I'll just drop a link to the gallery:

    That's just killer! Great looking shelves in addition to the collection. Also impressed that as a cornerstone you've got Calvin and Hobbes. Well done sir, well done.

    Nice rack! I mean, shelves. I'm quite jealous.

    Those are really nice shelves and more books than you can shake a stick at as my old man used to say.

    Oh hey my thread.

    So I may or may not have mentioned I'm a huge Jeffrey Thomas fan. One of my collecting goals is to get at least one edition of each of his books. Some are easier to get than others, with the most difficult being A Puppet Show, Nether, and the Ultra edition of Punktown, largely because only 26 copies of each were made (plus some PC copies, of course). I've already posted pictures in this thread of the copy of A Puppet Show I managed to snag, leaving only two of the super-rare titles to pick up.

    Well...





    Those lines on the book are features of the leather, not damage or anything.







    And the whole family:
