Lead found in vintage books’ ink: Should I be concerned?
I recall the big to-do over lead in toys manufactured in China in the late 2000s, but has there been more regarding lead in old books (bookcovers and pages), especially in children’s books, please? I own many vintage copies of children’s books at home. Some of the bookcovers are slowly deteriorating or disintegrating, becoming powdery. Is there a way to neutralize the lead from the books?
