Book Description

About The Book

This is the book which was intended to come in two separate titles but I had to publish it in a joint title namely "Conservation of Textiles, Bone and Ivory" for reasons not in my control. We have first to understand them in totality and know how these have been made, what materials have been used in them, how the various parameters of our tropical environment affect them and start their decay process. We try our best to restore them very near to their original aesthetic look without adding much un compatible but reversible materials so that they do not look new but well cared by the present scientific approach and attitude.
