Refers to the condition of a book; intrinsic to paper, the patchy brownish- ellow spots that discolour plates and pages of a book. It is most likely caused by lack of ventilation and/or chemical reactions between the paper and micro-organisms. The spots are generally found in 19th century books and can range from barely visible to ruinous. Also known as foxed.

About the author 

CJ McDaniel

CJ grew up admiring books. His family owned a small bookstore throughout his early childhood, and he would spend weekends flipping through book after book, always sure to read the ones that looked the most interesting. Not much has changed since then, except now some of those interesting books he picks off the shelf were designed by his company!
