Both entertaining and informative. This is a great, easy-to-understand guide to preservation. I admit I skimmed through some of the information about types of artifacts that I am not dealing with at home or at work, but I found the book very useful--after reading my library copy I had to buy one.

I attended a lecture at the Getty. The lecture was by the author of this book. Really informative to help you care for those family heirlooms and all those good old things that you want to keep for your children.

While most of us could spare a good many things from our households, there is some stuff that we do want to preserve. Find out how with this practical book.
