As part of a larger project we were looking to display a collection of newly acquired inscribed books on a revolving basis – we needed a display method that would protect the book displayed but be flexible to be used with a variety of pieces. We also needed something that would sit comfortably in a historic show room, curatorially. The Book Shelter was suggested to us by our regional conservator and has been effective on all counts.
The Book Shelter worked very well for us fulfilling all of our criteria, protection for the piece, ease of use, attractive design – we have since purchased another for another property in our portfolio.
The design is brilliantly straightforward and does the job well. There is nothing to set up really and it is standing up well to daily use on our main visitor route.
The Book Shelter has allowed us to safely share a wider element of our collection at reasonable cost and in a manner that suits our display as well as upholding conservation standards.
