The text is of even greater value because there is little published information on the principles of paint research in buildings. I can thoroughly recommend this excellent book. SPAB News This book will be essential reading for paint researchers, architects, surveyors, conservation officers and all practitioners involved in commissioning paint research for historic buildings.
