Spring Session Starts!
Renate Mesmer is here teaching Basics in Paper Conservation to kick off the spring session of the American Academy of Bookbinding. Yeah! Students are here from Virginia, Wyoming, Utah, Missouri, Nebraska and Colorado. The past three days it has snowed about a foot, which is a surprise but not totally uncommon here in the high Rocky Mountains. Hopefully by the time the rest of you get here the snow will be over!
Congratulations to Renate, who has just been named "Acting Head of Conservation" at the Folger Shakespeare Library, moving up from Assistant Head to take Frank Mowery's place. Frank is still the Folger but is onto some new projects. CONGRATULATIONS RENATE!!
