“For safe handling and display, a person needs to be truly sympathetic to the book as a physical, 3D, working object”
Christopher Clarkson. The Safe Handling and Display of Medieval Manuscripts and Early Printed Books
If you have a book that has been requested for international exhibition or you want to put some items on open display in your collection or home, we can manage the necessary processes to a successful display.
