The editor and trustees of Abbey Publications, Inc., a nonprofit corporation, want to express our appreciation for support received from the people and organizations listed below, as well as from those who gave smaller amounts.
All donations are considered to be intended for Abbey Publications (thus contributing to the Abbey Newsletter, the Alkaline Paper Advocate and other publications and products of this office). In the last 12 months, donations from readers have totaled $8345.
A Trustees' Fund was set up in December 1993 to receive donations from Abbey Publications' trustees. As of February 22, 1995, it had $2200 in it. This brings the total of donations for the last 12 months to $13,298.
Donors are listed below as Benefactors ($1000+), Sponsors ($500+), Patrons ($100+), and Contributors ($25+).
The Abbey Newsletter: Bookbinding and Conservation is issued eight times a year and has about 1250 subscribers. All subscriptions are for the calendar year. New subscribers automatically receive all issues published in the current year, unless they request otherwise, until October 1; after that, it is assumed that the subscription is for the following year. Checks or international money orders may be made out in U.S. dollars or English pounds, payable to Abbey Publications; send to 7105 Geneva Dr., Austin, TX 78723, USA. Foreign checks must have the name of a U.S. bank printed on the front. International payments can be made by VISA or Mastercard.
Full-time students & $20 unpaid-interns: Personal subscriptions: $40 Institutional subscriptions: $49
Paid advertisements, except for job ads, are not accepted. Job advertisements are billed at the rate of $50 for the heading and the first ten lines (55-60 characters per line), plus $2 per line thereafter. Any notice that is appropriate and newsworthy will be printed if there is room for it. Claims for issues never received will be honored within a year of publication. Defective issues will be gladly replaced on request.
The Abbey Newsletter is selectively indexed in Art & Archaeology Technical Abstracts, and the Institute of Paper Science & Technology Abstract Bulletin. All issues but v.1 #2 are in print, and each volume has its own index. It is the policy of Abbey Publications to use permanent paper for both newsletters.
The Editor encourages readers to photocopy freely from the Newsletter; but the Editor's permission must be obtained before making more than 20 copies of lengthy or signed articles. This allows us to make any necessary corrections or updates, and to contact other copyright holders for permission to reprint.
Abbey Publications is a nonprofit corporation set up to encourage preservation of the written record, including the use of lasting materials in the creation of records. Its other publications are the Alkaline Paper Advocate and the annual North American Permanent Papers. The corporation has five trustees (Ellen McCrady, Gary Frost, Roberta Pilette, Thomas Clareson, and James Wellvang), and five officers (Ellen McCrady, president; Susan Swartzburg, first vice president; Roberta Pilette, second vice president; Gary Frost, secretary; and Paul Banks, treasurer).
When the Abbey Publications board met in August, they voted to keep subscription prices the same, but to increase the prices of pH pens and the North American Permanent Papers booklet.
Pen prices will increase by about 60% February 1, 1995. Until then the old prices apply, starting with $3.50 per pen for 1 to 5 pens.
The price of the 1995 edition of the North American Permanent Papers booklet will go up from $7 to about $20. These two price increases should help pay for our editorial assistant, who was hired on a temporary basis (until next September) a few weeks ago.
We will also reduce the frequency of the Alkaline Paper Advocate from six to four times a year, in order to free up some of the editor's time. Only the frequency, not the amount or quality of information, will change.Editor: Ellen McCrady
