Gaylord Brothers / Curating Books etc.


If I had to admit to collect something -other than wood-working tools, it would be books. Very worthy collectible I must say. And very worthy of curatorial care.  I need to tout Gaylord Brothers (http://www.gaylord.com/lobby_gaylordmart.asp?), in this direction.  It seems their biggest market is libraries of every stripe, but they have interesting products.

Of more importance, however, are a couple of free resources -down-loadable .pdf’s actually.  I highly recommend…

Book Craft

I actually recommended this before, but they have a new one….

Guide to Collections Care 

…which is a bit broader in subject -covers photos, paper, and fabric and all.

(One never knows how links might come across in a blog, so if these links don’t get’er done for you, hit their homepage and click on  Request a Catalog -they are at the bottom.
