Postprints

*NEW*

The first paper since 2009 has been published! You may preview the first few pages of Christine Storti’s 2014 paper Improving the legibility of faded handwriting on furniture by digital modification of infrared, ultraviolet, and polarized-light-filtered photography. The entire article can be found on the AIC member community, Memberfuse.

Once complete, a final book of Postprints will be compiled for each year. The books will be available for free to WAG members in the AIC store, or for purchase to the public.

Postprints archives


WAG gathers content for the Wooden Artifacts session of the Annual Meeting. In the Postprints archive on the Wooden Artifacts website, you will find searchable, full-text copies of most of the published papers from 1986–2006. The papers are in PDF format. The images have been optimized for printing, resulting in larger file sizes, but will yield clearer results when printed out. Articles appear as submitted by authors and are not peer-reviewed. PDF files require Adobe Acrobat Reader to view. View more info >
