This revised edition covers the special needs of home picture framers. It explains, in clear detail, the need for framing and mounting to archival conservation standards. It covers the full range of matting and framing techniques, finishing and refinishing methods, and cutting molding from plain stock.
This edition adds new topics, such as using power tools and creating hinged frames. The source directory has been updated to include Canadian and American suppliers. Black-and-white photographs illustrate the difficult points, while eight pages of full-color photographs summarize special techniques.
