Conservators find best treatment for wedding veil from "Gone With The Wind" is no treatment | Cultural Compass

Ebbene sì meglio non restaurare, anche se non sono un fanatico di via col vento devo dire che ci sono un sacco di ragioni in quest'articolo, non ultimo concordo che i guanti delle volte sono più un impiccio che un vantaggio e che delle volte è necessario avere lìoggetto tra le mani nude.

Gone With The Wind is full of lessons about love, life, and loss. Almost 75 years later, Scarlett’s silk wedding veil has one more lesson.

“At the end of our life, it is the end of our life. We are all organic material. When a costume has come to the end of its life, it is no different than we are,” says Cara Varnell, a specialist in Hollywood film costumes and the conservator working on the Ransom Center’s five Gone With The Wind dresses.

razor blade planes: an overview « jeff peachey


razor blade planes: an overview
Posted in book conservation, book repair, bookbinding, bookbinding machines by Jeff Peachey on August 17, 2011

INTRODUCTION

There are three fundamental techniques of paring leather in bookbinding: using a paring knife, using a modified spokeshave and using a paring machine, such as the Fortuna, Schar-Fix or Brockman. Often various combinations of these methods are used. Learning how to pare leather not only requires learning the technique of using a knife or spokeshave, but also the skills of how to keep the knife or blade sharp. The Brockman or Scharf-Fix alleviates the need to learn how to sharpen, although some thrifty bookbinders do resharpen their double edge blades. These paring machines are best suited for making small, thin flat pieces of leather — generally for onlays, labels, quarter bindings — rather than achieving a long, gradual bevel necessary for rebacking or English style full leather bindings.

Allarme infiltrazioni d'acqua a Brera salvato lo 'Sposalizio' di Raffaello - Milano - Repubblica.it

Raffaello l'hanno spostato ma i libri della Braidense ?

Allarme infiltrazioni d'acqua a Brera salvato lo 'Sposalizio' di Raffaello - Milano - Repubblica.it: "Allarme infiltrazioni d'acqua a Brera
salvato lo 'Sposalizio' di Raffaello
L'intervento dopo lo scoppio di un canale all'interno del muro alle spalle del capolavoro
La soprintendente Bandera: servono lavori urgenti di restauro per evitare altri rischi
La perdita a Brera
E' stato lo scoppio di un canale che passa all'interno di quel muro a scatenare quel sabato pomeriggio di due mesi fa a Brera l'allagamento del loggiato denunciato oggi all'Ansa da un tecnico della Uil, e documentato da foto e da un filmato. Lo rivela la soprintendente ai beni artistici di Milano, Sandrina Bandera, che sottolinea la necessità per il complesso di urgenti lavori di restauro sulle coperture. 'Piove anche sui libri della biblioteca Braidense, il nostro problema è generale'. Vera la denuncia del sindacato, conferma, 'Il canale è scoppiato e ha tracimato acqua a non finire, siamo dovuti intervenire in emergenza'.  Anche se 'Lo sposalizio della Vergine' di Raffaello secondo la soprintendente  'non era in pericolo. Eravamo tranquilli. Però l'acqua si era infiltrata nella sala passando da sotto la porta, una cosa che non doveva succedere'."
