The Wardle Pattern Books Revealed Project
The Whitworth Art Gallery
Manchester, UK

UKP21,682 - UKP25,135 pa
Fixed term for 6 months

The Wardle Pattern Books Revealed is a conservation, research and
interpretation project that will offer new insights into the working
processes of designers, manufacturers and retailers of the late 19th
and early 20th centuries. The 11 textile sample books on which it is
based are a potentially exceptional resource for research but in
their present state the books are difficult to access. As part of
the project they are being photographed digitally and published on
the Gallery website for virtual "book browsing".  A recent grant
from the Designation Challenge Fund will fund low level remedial
conservation of the eleven books and facilitate access by re-housing

Informal enquiries regarding the project to

Closing date 13 July 2007.
