Re: inks



<<I'd hate to sound as if I'm overinvested in iron-gall ink>>

The ink corrosion website "is hosted by the European Commission on Preservation
and Access in Amsterdam. It was created in collaboration with the Museum
Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam and The Netherlands Institute for Cultural
Heritage in Amsterdam. Contributions have come from The Netherlands State
Archives in The Hague, the Teyler Museum in Haarlem, Thompson Conservation
Laboratory in Portland, Oregon, The Netherlands Organization for Applied
Scientific Research (TNO)in Delft, Shell Research & Technology Centre,
Amsterdam, de Koninklijke Bibliotheek (the National Library of The Netherlands)
in The Hague, and the Municipal Archives in Rotterdam."

Iron gall ink corrosion has been a major focus for conservation scientists such
as Margaret Hey, Gerhard Banik, Johan Neevel, Anne Liénardy, and Birgit
Reißland.

Yes, there are many old manuscripts written with iron-gall ink that are in good
condition.

There are also many old manuscripts written with iron gall ink that resemble
lace.
