I labor in publishing, plus anywhere along the way I got into collecting books. I’ve never collected anything in my life–I despise clutter plus I don’t understand the point of knick knacks at all, and however, a single day I found myself in a used plus vintage library plus happened upon plus illustrated labor by my favorite author from the British Romanticism movement, plus the rest is history. Yet with collecting comes preservation. I loathe moving now, because I have to put my vintage volumes in a separate box with acid free packing materials. I then sealed the outside of the box in plastic to waterproof it. I’m always so distraught about keeping these old volumes in great condition, and recently I decided to look up ways to help keep them in the best climate control conditions possible. I hoped it would bring myself and others a little peace of mind. What I found was that they needed to be kept in as dry conditions as possible. This worked great for winter, but the rest of the year it entirely gets undoubtedly humid. I also don’t have central air conditioner, so the air quality isn’t great to begin with. What I finally settled on was getting a dehumidifier. The dehumidifier works to suck moisture out of the air. It’s undoubtedly simple to operate; just turn it off when the tank is full, empty the tank, upgrade tank plus turn it back on. Even I can handle that. Now my books are stored in pristine condition with a dehumidifier plus whole-beach house air purifier, plus I have a single less thing to stress about.
