good friend of Conservation By Design Ltd, who died tragically on
July 4 2004. Nicholas was a research Fellow of the University of the
Arts London. and a well liked and hugely respected professional in
his field. He was a key collaborator on the "Squelch Drying"
technique devised by CXD after a flood at the Founders Library of

of drying valuable rare books. and recently used after the
devastating floods in Prague.
