The American Academy of Bookbinding offers the following new course
added to their 2012 fall schedule:

Applied Paper Conservation - Individual Projects
November 9-13, 2012

    Renate Mesmer
    Folger Shakespeare Library

Cost: $700


This Applied Lab is designed to provide continuing Paper
Conservation students with an opportunity to expand and deepen their
knowledge through practical application working with projects of the
student's choice. Projects may consist of books, maps, prints,
drawings and other two-dimensional paper objects. Projects should be
achievable within the scope of the student's current working
knowledge and experience and the time allotted. Selected projects
may include some challenging elements for individual student growth
but care should be taken to avoid complex tasks and techniques that
are too advanced for the student's level. Tape removal will not be
addressed in this class. Students will be expected to prepare
pre-treatment reports along with before photos prior to class. These
reports should be sent to the instructor for review two weeks before
the first day of class. Working with the instructor, treatment
options will be discussed and determinations for treatment will be
made. The lab may include advanced paper chemistry, material
studies, damage analysis, decision methodology, as well as the pros
and cons of different treatments. Treatments will include a wide
variety of washing and drying techniques, paper repairs, lining as
well as sizing. Students will have plenty of time to practice the
new techniques and apply them to treatments on their items in this
lab class under the instructor's guidance and supervision.
Participants in the Applied Paper Conservation course will need to
have completed the Basics in Paper Conservation course.
