>HUMIDIFICATION, FLATTENING & ENCAPSULATION:
>Unfolding or unrolling old paper can be a risky business,
>but it is often essential if the material is going to be
>examined and catalogued.  Here you will learn a safe,
>controlled way to humidify and flatten paper and
>encapsulate the finished product in archivally stable
>Mylar®.  Participants should bring two documents they
>would like to flatten, approximately 11" x 17" and one or
>two other items to encapsulate.

>     Friday 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
>Instructor: Julia Landry
>Fee:$75.00 including materials

>RECASING THE CLOTHBOUND BOOK:
>When your favourite cloth bound (hardcover) book
>comes adrift from its covers, it may not need a full
>rebinding.  If the textblock is securely sewn, the covers
>can be reattached without seriously altering the
>appearance of the book.  Participants will recase a book
>of their choice, restoring the covers, etc. as necessary.
>N.B. The textblock must be sewn, not glued.
>Dates:July 19th 2003

>book, pamphlet, photograph or print of your choice.  The
>projects include a portfolio, a drop back or clamshell
>box and one other.  Students should bring photographs,
>art work or small pamphlets for the portfolio projects and
>a book or collection of single sheets for the box projects.
