No new Object this week: Alison Cullingford, curator of the exhibition, is on annual leave. Meanwhile, here’s a first look at Alison’s new book, The Special Collections Handbook, pictured with some favourites from the collections (part of Object 38 included).
Published by Facet in 2011, the Handbook was written to help librarians, archivists and others working with collections like our Objects. it covers everything from keeping them safe to raising funds for them. More info on the Handbook’s own website.
