With the help of PageMaker and assistant Dan Pace, this early issue has been reprinted in a facsimile copy. The headlines have been revised, however, to make them more consistent with the style of the text.
Now we can finally say that all back issues are in print. This issue can be purchased for $4, postage paid.
Smaller white Abbey pH Pens® are available from the Abbey office for $2.80 for 1-100 (half-price) and $2.50 for amounts over that, for associations and professional organizations to resell or distribute to their members, and for people who speak to groups about archival supplies and related matters. Contact the office by mail, telephone, fax or e-mail to place your order.
The printing on the barrel had to be shortened because the space
was smaller. It reads, "Abbey pH Pen® (purple=alkaline).
Abbey Publications 512/929-3992." We can arrange for the
organization's logo and other information to be added in the remaining
space on the pen, for a small charge. Ask Bette at the office
The Abbey Newsletter: Bookbinding and Conservation is issued eight times a year and has about 1200 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, 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.
Beginning with 1997, personal subscriptions will be $45; institutional subscriptions $55, and subscriptions for full-time students and unpaid interns $20. Overseas air mail is $15/year.
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 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 at a time of lengthy or signed articles. This lets us make any necessary corrections or updates, or contact other copyright holders for permission to reprint.
