Caring for Your Family Treasures

Caring for Your Family Treasures Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

An informative, practical guide, charmingly designed and illustrated, by two authors with considerable expertise. While their previous book Caring for Your Collections was aimed at private collectors, small museums, and historical societies, this one is for the individual who would like to properly care for some family keepsakes. Among the types of items they discuss are books, photos, home movies, paintings, fabrics, furniture, musical instruments, military mementos, and toys. Here's authoritative advice on how to, say, avoid diminishing the value of that beautiful lamp by polishing it, as well as how to avoid having treasured family photos turn to dust over time.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
