"The principles of remedial conservation include doing as little as possible (‘minimal conservation’) and the concepts of ‘reversibility’ or ‘re-treatability’. The aim of the treatment is to avoid changing the object in such a way as it cannot be returned to its previous state."
In conservation we always go that extra mile to hold on to original material. New materials are added in with restraint as not to disturb the original appearance. Each treatment is carefully and applied to prevent each item from further decline and to preserve them for the future.
If you have a book, document or a collection that you are considering for conservation feel free to contact us with no obligation.
