<< Also, is there a way to copy such items without causing further harm??
I have several childhood drawings done by my nieces that are very dear to
me and they are fading quickly .. even being kept inside a scrapbook.
I would think xeroxing them would not be a good idea, though I
am tempted before they fade into nothingness.
Why not have color photocopies made on an archival 80# or 90# hot press
(perhaps Arches) watercolor paper? You could then double mat them and keep the
unbound prints in a museum quality portfolio.
Light Impressions (archival supplies) has a free catalog offering many
possible ideas. (800) 828-6216. FAX: (800) 828-5539.
