To much space between the encapsulated area for just a book shift, and yes the staples would pull at that point. 😔

I believe in many instances the entire book can move in that interior well, so it may not pull on the staples.

I don't believe that it was done in encapsulation... otherwise there'd be no tear

No. Not necessarily due to encapsulation. Of course, I imagine it can occur, but deformation of overhang can occur at any time, and if pushed down over the pages at any point along the spine, non-uniformly, as this is (abruptly, at some point along the spine for a limited area), at the start of that downturn, rom pressure or impact, a tear may or may not result. Plenty of books with overhang are impacted just like this, without ever being slabbed. I'm not saying it can't happen in slabbing; just that the origin of it cannot be positively determined.

I agree.... that's why I followed it up with, it's got the correct grade on it...

It fits the description so probably didn't happen in encapsulation lol

I could have sworn that's what I wrote in the first place haha, so thanks Johnson for letting me correct it... :foryou:
