ABC For Book Collectors

Through the good graces of Oak Knoll Books and the British Library, the full text of John Carter’s ABC For Book Collectors is now available as a free PDF.  It’s a great introduction to all the different parts of a book, and a reference I’ve used many times as a student.

Tape is evil!

Tape Removal

Beth Heller, paper conservator and Kilgarlin alum, speaks out against the evils of tape in her blog (now added to the blogroll as well). With gift-giving holidays right around the corner, what better way to show your thoughtfulness than with a “Tape is Evil” coffee mug or Paper Conservation calendar? Just check out Beth’s Cafepress store for more Tape Is Evil merchandise.
