Stu, see if you can remove laminate from a DJ; that would be interesting. Plenty of laminated DJs out there...

Yeah, my gut feel is that it would be tricky because of the delicate surface, plus you haven't got anything to pull against. Even heated, the adhesive would probablt have had enough tension to stretch unsecured paper fibres. Removing the laminate from the maps was certinly the most difficult bit, and whilst in this case I was able to remove it (and not really even leave any yellowing), I suspect that was unusual. It is something I will have a go with -- just need to keep my eyes open for suitable garage sale books to have an experiment on.

I found another first impression Longman's. No sticky backed plastic this time. Appears unread. Only cost a smidgen over £5, so a good deal! Tiny bit of foxing to the top page edges and a little bit of toning to the white on the spine, but otherwise a very nice copy.
