"Handling art is an art. Get and read Jill Snyder's book, Caring for Your Art. Then make sure that everyone on your staff reads it, too. I have been knocking around the art world for over 25 years, and I learned more than one thing I didn't know from this excellent book. . . . Wow." -- Artifacts

"This book offers step-by-step guidelines for the safekeeping of art in your studio, home or gallery . . . the text is easy to read. . . . There are helpful tips on photographing your work, important not only for artists wishing to duplicate slides for potential clients or collectors, but for documentation of works for insurance purposes." -- Communication Arts --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Publisher

Concerns about preserving an artwork ideally start before a work is created or put on display: What degree of humidity can a studio or show room have? How will the exciting new plastic material behave once the color has dried out? With CARING FOR YOUR ART, those involved with the creation and distribution of art will be able to choose locations, creative material, supports, framing equipment and wrapping material without running into unpleasant surprises.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book provides useful instructions for storage and shipping but it is too generic and superficial in other areas like insurance, security and inventory control.

This is a great book. It has so much information that I had to read through different sections several times. I would recommend this to any serious artist.
