Reply To: German photo album interleaving paper


It may be difficult to define what are a “good” condition since you may not have a reference, since one photo of the same kind, in the album, that wasn’t in contact with the interleaving.


There’s a lot of info and opinions about these kind of glassine papers, in their classic and “conservation ok” versions. Try to search even in this same site.

Even if for me its a relatively dangerous material (too acid, fragile, and if there’s a problem like high mudity raise or even water contact it tends to become so sticky that it can destroy the photos it seems to protect by melting with the binder), changing someting in a complex object like a photo album its always complicated. And, to take something Marcela said, invasive interventions where things seems to be stabilised its most of times more damaging than keeping it like this.
