- Eleanore Stewart, Chair of the Book Conservation Catalog,
issued an appeal in 1991 for volunteers to serve as contributors,
reviewers, and translators. She can be contacted at 4175 Wilkie
Way, Palo Alto, CA 94306 (home: 415/494-7302; work: 415/723-0394).
The Book Conservation Catalog is patterned after the
Paper Conservation Catalog, which systematically
documents all good ways of performing paper conservation procedures,
without endorsing any particular procedure
The section that is closest to being done is probably the sewing
section, but it needs reviewers. [This Catalog is a project that
binders and book conservators both here and abroad will be very
interested in, as each part is published. It should not be allowed
to lapse. -Ed.]
- Carrie Ann Calay (Conservation and Preservation Services, 530
Hampshire Street, Unit 300, San Francisco, CA 94110-1417
(415/552-7889), would like to hear from other people (book, paper
and photo conservators) who have observed color changes in prints or
other materials hinged with Filmoplast P-90 pressure-sensitive tape.
She has observed such a print, only seven years old, on which the
ochre ink of the image turned "greenish ochre" over the hinge. She
made her appeal in the WAAC
Newsletter for January.
