Q. I have a leather antique map. And I wonder how shall I get it framed? I prefer it to get framed between two glasses. But some people say it is not a good idea getting it that way.What do you recommend? Thank you in advance

A. Hello Ozge,

Indeed, you have heard correct. The idea of sandwiching any piece of artwork between two pieces of glass is never a good idea, as it can encourage moisture to be drawn into the artwork itself.

Floating the map with a selection of textural materials: fabric and/or paper mats would possibly work. You have not identified where you are located, but if you email me directly, I'd be glad to recommend a framer near you who might help.

Visiting a local PPFA framer is a good place to start. Simply click on the Find a Framer link in the middle of the PPFA page.

Q. Hello, I recently purchased a print at a local auction. It is entitled Blue Bird and REd Berries. It is numbered 144 of 200 and bears the signature Ikki Matsomoto. I was able to locate the artisit web site but have not been able to make contact with him to verify that this item is indeed one of his works. It was beautifully framed by a wild life gallery here in Kansas City but they have since gone out of business.
