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.
