Plant Bible Revival: The Conservation of a 15th-Century Herbal, Then and Now (Met Museum)

Met Museum: Plant Bible Revival: The Conservation of a 15th-Century Herbal, Then and Now. “This magnificent 15th-century herbal, which has been in The Met collection for 73 years, was among the most damaged of the 186 books I treated thanks to the generous New York State Grant Program for Conservation and Preservation. This year’s project focused on plant and garden books in the Department of Drawings and Prints. To make this book accessible to the public once again, while also maintaining the integrity of its history and functionality, I developed a customized treatment plan.”
