Upholstery Conservation: Principles and Practice

The care, interpretation and treatment of historic upholstery is a relatively new subject. This project involved the dissemination of on-going practice in upholstery conservation through a well-illustrated publication Upholstery Conservation: Principles and Practice, by Kathryn Gill and Dinah Eastop, co-editors and significant contributors. The book was published in December 2000 by Butterworth-Heinemann, a major international publisher in the conservation and museum field. The award of £925.00 provided support for the copy editing process of this publication and allowed for additional high quality illustrations.
