Damage to paper artefacts can take many forms, and result from various causes; normal ageing processes, poor storage or previous repair work, accidental damage such as flooding or pest attack. However, good conservation will halt further deterioration and restoration work can remedy much of the damage.

• Foxing (small red-oxide coloured spots)
• Acidity (visible yellowing of the paper)
• Surface abrasions and scratches
• Missing Areas (worm holes/damage to page edges etc.)
