In recent years, interest in old photographs has grown significantly among a broad public, from collectors, conservators, and archivists to amateurs seeking to preserve precious family albums. Although the medium of photography is barely 150 years old, its relatively brief history has witnessed the birth of a wide range of photographic processes, each of which poses unique conservation challenges.

Mr.Savik
This is one of the accepted compendiums on photograph conservation covering photographic processes from daguerreotype to silver gelatine. Organized by positive or negative and substrate type, such as “Positives on Metal”, and “Negatives on Paper”. Each process is structured the same throughout the book, containing a short history, what is the process, fabrication and use, deterioration and care, occurrence in collections, structure of the material, and environmental sensitivity (i.e. how sensitive is it to light, abrasion, humidity, etc.). Also included are examples of each process, including an overall view and magnified view of a part of the example. The final section is on conservation; types of deterioration, influencing factors, treatments, and disasters. There is also a good glossary, endnotes, and instead of a bibliography recommended further reading and information. As stated initially, this is a compendium, if more detail is required, material specific to each process should be consulted.
