CASE STUDY - MAP BOOK

  • The map book was in a state of disrepair after being damaged in a flood and needed taking apart completely.
  • A note was made of where each piece came from.
  • The sheets were washed and de-acidified.
  • The sheets were then put up on the wall board piece by piece on to a backing of archival linen.
  • When dry the complete map was taken down trimmed and folded.
  • A new cover was made to house the map with the original label put back on the front.
