Constructing Tuxedo Boxes for Your Book Collection (Philadelphia, PA)

Presented By: The Conservation Center for Art & Historic Artifacts


Description: Quality book enclosures serve a number of important functions, as they protect books from light, dust, and pests; buffer sensitive book materials against environmental changes that can cause distortion and shrinkage; and provide physical protection for fragile or damaged books. This hands-on workshop will discuss the types of books that benefit most from enclosure, and will provide step-by-step instructions for making inexpensive, custom-fit book boxes from alkaline card stock. Known as tuxedo boxes because of their elegant fit, these enclosures are appropriate for small to medium-size books.


Location: The Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University

 

Speaker: Renee Wolcott, Book Conservator, CCAHA
