Close up of display cradle and book

Exhibition Advice and Conservation Mounting:

We can provide advice for the exhibition and display of items, such as advice on lighting, mounting and display cradles and supports for both flat and bound items.

All exhibition supports and mount materials are archival and acid free and all mounted/framed flat items are hinged with Japanese tissue and starch paste following conservation standards.

We can also digitise items and provide printed facsimile copies for exhibition purposes where the original items are too delicate or sensitive to be displayed.

Exhibition and Display Examples

We construct display cradles from acid free grey board cores that are then clad in acid free black matt boards to minimise their presence (other colours can be used if required), the surfaces in contact with the original items are lined with archival Plastazote foam.
The cradles can be made to display the items at particular pages and will support the volumes fully.
We can also mount flat items in exhibition framing mats, original items will be hinged onto acid free board using Japanese tissue hinges and starch paste and a bevelled frame can be attached over the board ready for framing.
