"This especially valuable, clearly written, and well-documented overview considers major cognitive issues that confront conservators of historic and artistic works...Superb examples range from Paleolithic cave art to cathedral mosaics, shrunkenheads to Spitfire aircraft, and the Statue of Liberty to the Portland Vase."
