This book features exceptionally important tapestries from major European collections showing the world-class research - scientific, artistic and historical - applied to their preservation. The collections, mostly of Renaissance Flemish tapestries, belong to the UK's Royal Collection at Hampton Court Palace (for example, a piece from a set depicting 'The Story of Tobias' first noted in Henry VIII's inventory of 1547); the Spanish Royal Collections tapestries at the Palacio Real, Madrid; and tapestries from several sites in Belgium. The information is presented in an understandable and practical way.
Dr Anita Quye is a Conservation Scientist at National Museums Scotland, Edinburgh. Kathryn Hallet is Senior Conservation Scientist at Historic Royal Palaces. Dr Concha Herrero Carretero has been at the Patrimonio Nacional in Madrid, Spain, since 1982, currently as Co-ordinator of the Conservation Department.
