Photos For Process

I’ve been wrapping Der Deutsche Correspondent in archival Tyvek for a couple weeks now. It’s slightly more time consuming than I originally thought it would be, but it is still enjoyable. I’m happy to wrap these precious newspapers in archival materials to better preserve them. The photographs below illustrate a portion of the process. The Tyvek is rolled out on a table, the bound volumes are placed on the Tyvek as the meauring tool, the Tyvek is cut, the bound volume is unwrapped, and the volume is re-wrapped in Tyvek. I have printed four labels per volume to stick on the top, sides, and one end of the volume so that someone searching in our storage area could easily find the volume they are looking for.
