Beyond the basic 'how-to' recipe list, this beautifully produced report from the workers at the sharp end of the restoration business displays a clear view of the problems - and their solutions - encountered in day-to-day high end heritage conservation. Whilst of little practical application to the average hobbyist or crafts person who might want to add the glow of gold to their work now and again, the book gives an insight into the professionals' work. Well produced and amply illustrated.

I knew of this book as it was being used by other students on our conservation course where we were learning how to do gilding and how to treat historical objects. Very helpful in learning techniques.

This book has a beautiful cover but once you open it, the feeling of disappointment hits. If you are hoping to learn about gilding, this is not the book to buy. It is very very thin, covers a few limited projects in Britain, it is very dry and I am very sorry to have bought it. I had hoped for some great tips on gilding in general, with some Italian Renaissance or French gilding included but no such luck. Will be sending it back.

This is more for the proffessional gilder and I found it really useful. Would not recommend for a beginner though.
