This album was an absolute dream to work on. I discovered it at a friend's house. It contains some watercolours painted by his great-grandmother, who obviously was an amazing artist. But the album had been badly stored, and was in a parlous state. I was able to save all the wonderful images by lifting them onto clean sheets, and keeping her hand-written annotations by cutting them out of the original sheets and pasting them onto the clean ones. This was one of the most pleasurable projects I have ever done, and it has been a real honour to salvage the work of such a talented artist!
