From The Lab: Stabilizing A Tattoo Sketchbook

For the last three months or so, I’ve been interning at the New York Historical Society. One of the more interesting projects I completed there was the stabilization of a tattoo sketchbook which will be featured in an upcoming exhibit. The treatment involved cleaning, mending, disbinding and rebinding a book belonging to a tattoo artist in the 1890s. Read about the treatment on the N-YHS blog here!
