Photographing FRAGILE & rare BOOKS

           See footer at the bottom of this message (or top of
     the digest) for instructions on searching the archive, setting
                  your list options,and unsubscribing.

Would members who have experience photographing fragile antiquarian books
kindly give me some tips on how to safely do this?  Digital okay? Or must it
be 32mm? These photos are for reproduction in a fine magazine, to accompany
an article about a book collection.
How does one hold such a book open in order to photograph pages?  Do hands
holding books open get retouched out of the picture?
   Any advice would be appreciated.
Thank you in advance,
Olivia Hibel
