Hughes H (ed.) Layers of Understanding – Setting Standards for Architectural Paint Research,

Proceedings of a one day seminar held on 28th April 2000 organised by English Heritage. Editor Helen Hughes, published by Donhead Publishing Ltd (2002 English Heritage) ISBN 1873394586

Architectural paint research is now recognised as a useful and powerful technique in the analysis and recording of historic buildings… 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)
