The "conservation" framer that I work with does mount large object
on aluminium as requested by artists. Most of the work she does with
large photos is heat set with a supposedly conservation adhesive
(which of course is irreversible).

Therefore I am also very interested in knowing how to mount photos.
Artist's like them flat, and many like to mount them floating, that
is, with no window mount.

As far as I am concerned, I would mount them with starch paste, but
probably in large formats is more difficult to hold them "flat". I
welcome any ideas so I can also advise my framer.
