Re: [BKARTS] Protecting books from sunlight

Hi, Pam,

I had a similar problem, and inserted boards covered with decorative
paper behind the glass of the cabinet doors. There was enough space in
the well of the door to slip the board in right behind the glass, and by
sizing it appropriately, friction holds it in. You can pop the boards
right out whenever you want.

Good luck!

Pam - how about a decorative folding screen positioned to protect the
cabinet? You could even add some of your papers, printings, or artwork
the protected side for additional display.
