Publication on caring for family treasures

From: Clare Hansen <chansen>
Date: Thursday, October 19, 2000
Heritage Preservation is pleased to announce publication of Caring
for Your Family Treasures, which is now available in bookstores. The
third title in Heritage Preservation and Harry N. Abrams Inc.'s
acclaimed Caring series, Treasures is a concise guide to caring for
objects kept for sentimental interest in nearly every home. With an
accessible, brief text and lots of photos, the book brings home the
best advice from professional conservators for the care of precious
family mementoes such as photo albums, home movies, scrapbooks,
toys, quilts and wedding dresses. With the burgeoning interest in
scrapbooking and genealogy, this book is certain to be a hit.

Caring for Your Family Treasures is unique from other books because
it is approved by professional conservators, covers a wide variety
of materials and appeals to a broad audience. It will be an
invaluable reference for conservators in handling general inquiries.
Treasures tells the lay audience not only how to preserve
irreplaceable photographs, but where to get the right supplies.  The
book is ideal for museum shops and also makes a unique membership
and development incentive. Quantity discounts are available from
Harry N. Abrams Inc. and Heritage Preservation.
