    Yes Glue brand is pretty useful, Ive reattached leather panels with it with great success.

    Another vote for Yes stickflat glue. When I use this to mount prints, I draw thin lines on the mount board just smaller than the print. Then I use it straight without diluting. Wash hands, keep some wet paper towels nearby and work near a sink. Get a gob the size of an acorn on thumb and rub firmly to spread the glue reasonably thin. Work carefully when you go to the lines. Wash hands again and then lay the print on top and press it down. I have never lost a print this way though I almost always have to wipe off small bits of misplaced glue.

    I'll cast my lot in with the wheatpasters, I've known a few people to use this paste to put up posters [This is actually called wheatpasting] and those posters seem to never come down!

    Both Yes glue, those simple nontoxic paste pens, and traditional wallpaper glues are just various formulas of wheat dextrin. The only serious drawback besides accidentally getting a sticky fingers etc on the face of the print, is that booklice will feed on this kind of substance. As you probably already know, at various terrible times in modern history, including the siege of Leningrad in WWII, people tried
    to stay alive by pulling down the wallpaper and licking the paste.

    i have eaten a pan full of wheat paste before ... thinking it was something else.
    it tasted vaguely like cream of wheat ... and that is what i convinced myself
    it was as i was eating it ... i only realized as i was eating the last
    spoonful that it was wheat paste. just in case you were wondering,
    it was pretty filling and mildly sweet. ( i made it with king arthur flour )
