Untangling tensions, for an improved 2019

Untangling knots and strains, for a better and restored 2019.

This year we have chosen a parchment manuscript owned by the Regional Archive of Baix Llobregat (Sant Feliu de Llobregat, Barcelona, Spain), which had an old repair consisting on several woven knots. It hindered the document from remaining flat and didn’t allow to fully read the text on the edges.
At the studio we set it free from these strain, flattened it and cleaned it for a better reading and durable conservation.
