Audrey’s conservator

Food residue, insects and mould. Usually conservator Stefania Signorello would want to clean such things off the items in her care. But Audrey Amiss’s scrapbooks were different and provided a new challenge. In this film, she explains why it was so important to preserve the scrapbooks as Audrey created them and how her skills were put to the test in caring for this unique collection.
