before, during and after

we have had a few john hancock documents in the lab lately, just by chance and all from different clients. this is one of them. the tapes (glassine and brown paper) were numerous, so when they came off in the bath, the document was in pieces. i lined the entire thing in order to piece it back together, and to give it stability as a whole. the newspaper clippings were lined as well, and hinged back onto the document in order to give context to the ballpoint pen notation near the bottom left corner.

on a side note, we just ordered a new camera for conservation documentation today, so at least the treatment photos on this blog will improve soon... hopefully!
