DSCN2663cropped1

The second edition of Banik and Brückle’s book Paper and Water: A Guide for Conservators is now in the Chantry Library! The text and illustrations have been revised to reflect new research, and the bibliography has been expanded with new sources. There is a new chapter by Ute Henniges and Antje Posthast on the characterisation of paper by instrumental analysis, and a discussion of interpreting the data obtained to provide answers to questions conservators ask about the ageing behaviour of paper, prediction of ‘useful lifetime’ under typical storage conditions, and the use of pH to infer the general condition of a paper. Not to be missed!
