What’s on your desk? This little guy sits on my desk watching over me. He is 56 years old and was my mams as a baby which she then passed to me. He went everywhere with me as a child, even now I have a snuggle with him when I’m in need of comfort! What do you have on your desk? #deskaccessories
Before (which was actually midway) and after..
Some if my art supplies have gotten easier to access and a lot of clutter and trash has been dealt with!
Let's see if it has the effect I hope for!
1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle True Rookie PSA 4 - Gorgeous example!! The forgotten rookie card! With the inaugural season of @topps in 1952 and the Short Print of the ‘52 Mantle in the high # series, left behind and forgotten is the gleaming ‘51 Mantle, his true rookie year!! The ‘51 Mantle has just started to be realized in value over the last few years with significant jumps in value. Still the more affordable of the 2 Mantle rookies, you can grab a PSA 4 for the value of a PSA 1 in the Topps. Both a must have for the finest high end collections!! - #PMJS#PristineMJSports

Today’s #WhatsOnYourDesk takes us to the paper conservation department. Say hello to the nadebake, or smoothing brush, found on the desk of Marika Kocsis, Senior Conservator of Paper here at the Library.
Sometimes, paper objects may be adhered to a secondary support (or lined). This can happen for a number of carefully considered reasons: consolidating a damaged object, like one with extensive tears; providing support for a fragile or brittle item; or to facilitate handling, exhibition or storage.
The nadebake is indispensable when it comes time to line a paper object. Traditionally used by Japanese scroll mounters, the nadebake helps in the application and smoothing of the lining paper. It is also used when joining sheets of paper together.
Made of a wooden handle (hinoki – Japanese cedar) and bristles (fibres from the shuro – hemp palm), these brushes come in various weights and should never be completely immersed in water. In use, Marika lightly dampens the tips of the fibres as this enables a smooth pass across the paper. Sometimes a light tapping motion can also be used. To clean, move the brush at right angles across a moistened towel and then hang to dry.
If the paper object is to be stored rolled, Marika uses a coil of glass beads (ura-sumi-tami) – seen here on the right – to rub evenly but firmly across the back of the new lining paper. This aids in releasing any distortion but also assists in making the lining paper flexible.
