Collapsible Book Cradle
I was visiting with my friend Elizabeth Rideout this weekend and she showed me this amazing collapsible book cradle she created. She just completed work at Preservation Services at Dartmouth and was recently named the Andrew W. Mellon Fellow at the Northeast Document Conservation Center in Andover, MA.
I’m so psyched for her, but I’ll miss her terribly (clearly MA isn’t VT).
Back to the book cradle. It can be adjusted to accommodate a range of book thicknesses and breaks down to something can be shelved like a book.
Here are some pictures of it:
Seriously, this thing is genius.
And who doesn’t like Velcro?
