Paper Mounted to Board
Sometimes works on paper will be mounted to board for display or in an attempt to protect a fragile work. Unfortunately, most board used for this type of mounting is very acidic and promotes the deterioration of the paper item mounted on top. Conservators can remove the work on paper from the board and deacidify it to protect it from further harm.
