The Icon Book and Paper Group is delighted to invite you to a
two-day international conference to be held in London in April 2015.

This conference aims to explore the introduction, formalisation and
evolution of East Asian materials and techniques that have become
part of paper conservation practice across the globe.  During the
conference, speakers and delegates will look into how these
practices, materials and techniques have been adapted and developed
within the conservation of Western book and paper collections.

The conference will draw together key speakers from across the
international conservation community, providing delegates with a
fresh view of current research into materials and techniques
borrowed from Japan, China, Taiwan and Korea.  The conference will
provide opportunities for delegates to take part in practical
workshops and will feature a wide variety of trade stalls, including
papermakers from East Asia.

The two-day conference will be proceeded by a day of studio visits
where delegates will have an opportunity to book into pre-arranged
tours of conservation studios in London.
