paper conservation: maps

endless maps, most from the indiana geological survey.  basically any sort of map you might want.  pompeii?  got it.  spain and portugal?  yep.  a map of properties covered by insurance in the 50s in spencer, indiana?  right here.

1) mend the tears

2) color fastness testing - they did pretty well, in a couple the red bled the tiniest bit but since the wash wasn't going to be too intense they still passed

3) stain removal if necessary

4) washed them with mild detergent

4) humidified & pressed them (pictures soon)
