Photo albums

From: Elisabeth Carr <e.carr>
Date: Wednesday, October 23, 2002
I am doing a research project on 'self-seal' albums, also called
magnetic or self-adhesive albums (these are albums that incorporate
leaves coated with strips of  a slightly tacky adhesive onto which
the photos are laid and then held in position by a polymer film) and
am seeking information from anyone who has knowledge of their
history, materials and adhesives used in their construction or
degradation processes.  I would also be interested to hear from
anyone who has undertaken conservation treatments on these albums or
has seen the damage suffered to photographs.
