Publication on conservation resources

From: Ed McManus <ed.mcmanus>
Date: Monday, January 8, 2001
The Washington Conservation Guild is pleased to announce the recent
publication of Conservation Resources for Art and Antiques.  In
1998, The Washington Conservation Guild undertook the publication of
this resource as part of its public education program.  The primary
objective of this publication is to link those in need of
conservation services with those who provide such services in the
Washington and Baltimore area.    We have sought to produce a
comprehensive reference that describes conservation practices, gives
guidance on finding reputable help, and lists local conservators
with descriptions of their backgrounds and area of specialties. The
essays in this reference guide are written by conservators and
provide valuable information on preservation principles for various
materials including paintings, metals, stone, textiles, photographs,
books, ceramics, furniture, graphics and more.  The essays also
present practical information on why, when, and how to seek help
from a conservator.  The book retails for $ 16.95 or $ 20.00 if
ordered by mail to cover postage and handling.  Please visit

about the publication and an order form.
