  1. I can't tell you the proper way but I can tell you what I've tried and how it worked. I've played with bending the staples straight using my fingers and a set of micro jewler pliers that I found at the flee market. I used my fingers to ply the staples open and then used the pliers to staighten the stable out. I then played with taking each page out individually. I found that unless I was extremely careful I would sometimes endup making little tears near the stables. I then tried puling the staple slowly out with all the pages still intact. I used a flat thin pocket knife blade that I would place between the staple and the back of the book. I would then slowly "rock" the staple out. I ended up prefering this method as in my case in mnimized or eliminated the damage I was causing using the other method. Putting the book back together was another problem. I have never found a method that I felt comfortable with in doing this. Hope this helps in some small way.
