Description:

Should you polish the silver? Where is the best place to store that family Bible? And what about the worn area in Aunt Alice's sampler? Should you try to repair the damage? The Winterthur Guide to Caring for Your Collection provides readers with answers to questions like these, along with practical advice on how to care for the objects they value. With chapters devoted to media ranging from paper and photographs to metalwork and textiles, the book presents a lucid approach to teaching the practical skills of conservation -- what to do and what not to do. In the second volume of the Winterthur Decorative Arts Series, the conservators at Winterthur call on their many years of experience to address the types of problems that people commonly encounter. Their advice and expertise will benefit all those concerned about the proper care of the objects they cherish.
