Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book puts the conservators' techniques into laymen's terms, explaining how various categories of objects should be cleaned, displayed, and stored to preserve them in their present state and to prevent future deterioration. The book is well organized and clearly written, and the full-color illustrations show examples of damage to objects as well as conservation techniques." —Maine Antique Digest

Format: Paperback
This is a small book that gives the readers a basic understanding of how to care for any collection. Broken down into collection type (textiles, photographs, porcelain, toys, glass, etc.), the use of pictures and easy to understand principles has served as a quick reference to let me know what kind of preservation care would be needed for a certain item. Of course, the book is not designed to be the ultimate reference on detailed preservation care, but unless you're an expert and can access the detailed information you need from your own shelves, this serves as something that gives correct information without overwhelming those of us who might care for a personal collection or who have come across an item we are unfamiliar with. Very useful and one of my favorites!!

This is a great book either if you're a museum professional or just an amateur collector who wants to understand the effect of physical and chemical forces on common collectible materials. It's easy to read and engaging.
