Magazines, comic books, pamphlets,and other softcover items are like newborn babies - they don’t have enough muscle to support themselves.
When exhibiting these materials, place a piece of mat board, cut to size, behind the item. Secure the board to the item with polyester strapping. This will keep your item from sagging or warping while on exhibit.
