Re: Exhibiting Books : A Brainstorm



Dear Robyn,

When I put my books on exhibit, I put a pair of white gloves on the stand
with the books so people can wear them and at least keep finger oil off the
pages.  I get inexpensive white cotton gloves from a camera shop.  I have
never tried chaining down the books!
