Contributions to the 5th AICCM Book, Paper and Photographic Materials Symposium. Editors: Prue McKay and Alana Treasure. Canberra, ACT: AICCM (Inc.), 2008.
The purpose of this poster is to raise awareness of pop-up, flick-through, pull-down, push-up and all other kinds of moveable books. These objects (and other moveable paper toys) with their many moving and folding parts, present particular challenges to the conservator faced with repairing them. A case study of the conservation of one such book, dating from 1899, is planned. As background research, several different types of moveable book have been collected and photographed. If you have a moveable book that you think may be of interest, please contact the author.
