Restoration or conservation?,
By A Customer
This review is from: Conservation of Furniture (Conservation and Museology) (Hardcover)
Drawing, as it does so heavily, on a few well-established published works this book already seems rather out-of-date and an opportunity has been missed to pull together more recent published research in a number of disciplines. The weakest areas of the book cover the subjects of upholstery and gilding. The authors are content to detail traditional materials and techniques with no mention or evaluation of modern synthetic materials and non-invasive methods of conservation in current use in studios around the world.
This is a good entry level book which should appeal to students of furniture restoration.
