Publication on mount making

From: Carole Dignard <carole_dignard>
Date: Tuesday, August 27, 2002
The second edition of Mount-making for Museum Objects is now
available. Authored by Robert Barclay and Carole Dignard (of the
Canadian Conservation Institute) and Andre Bergeron (of the Centre
de Conservation du Quebec), the book covers such topics as the
theory of support, recommended mounting materials with tips on their
uses and working properties, and methods of measuring objects. Also
included are detailed descriptions of various custom-made mounts,
with photographs and drawings for each (illustrations by Carl
Schlichting, private conservator and mount-maker in British
Columbia). New to this 2002 edition are technical updates on
recommended materials, further discussions on mount design, detailed
descriptions of three additional custom-made mounts, and more
pictures of mounts and techniques.

This paperback, ring-bound, 74-page book is priced at just US$40
(CAN$40 for orders from Canada), excluding shipping and handling
charges. For more information, or to place an order, contact CCI
<cci-icc_publications [at] pch__gc__ca> or visit the bookstore at

English and French; the English version is available now and the
French version will be released in late fall 2002.
