New additions to the Chantry Library book collection – February 2010

– Printed on Paper: the Techniques, History and Conservation of Printed Media edited by Jane Colbourne and Reba Fishman Snyder, Arts and Social Sciences Academic Press, Northumbria University, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK, 2009   ISBN: 978-0-9561206-3-2

null Covering the period from the later Middle Ages to the present, the essays in this book engage  
with fundamental issues of the care, conservation, treatment, history and display of printed
matter, ranging from 15th century incunables to early 20th century film posters and
contemporary digitally produced Fine Art prints.

They demonstrate the multi-disciplinary character of research in the field of conservation and technical art history, and its central significance for understanding and preserving cultural heritage. Printed on Paper is a collaboration between the Conservation Unit at Northumbria University and the American Institute for Conservation.      Contents page
