If you’ve been following this series, by now you have a working knowledge of preservation materials and storage options for your family treasures. Last week, the blog touched on textiles. This week’s post takes a closer look at how to care for family books and photos (scrapbooks and albums, too).
- Books are best stored upright (vertically) on shelves
- Books and photos should have minimal light exposure to avoid fading
- Avoid writing on the back of photos
- Keep food and drinks away while handling items
