The aim of this work is to evaluate the potentiality of a multi-technique nondestructive approach for characterizing the state of conservation of precious bookbindings. In particular, the bookbinding of an ancient book dating back nineteenth century was inspected by infrared thermography, near-infrared reflectography and transmittography, digital speckle photography, holographic interferometry, and proton magnetic resonance relaxometry. Data were processed by different and innovative methodologies, among which, a calibration procedure of the camera for correlation analyses based on specklegrams. The results were compared, showing a promising synergy for the diagnostic purposes, on the basis of the relationship between structure, properties, and uses of the analyzed materials.

Abstract

The aim of this work is to evaluate the potentiality of a multi-technique nondestructive approach for characterizing the state of conservation of precious bookbindings. In particular, the bookbinding of an ancient book dating back nineteenth century was inspected by infrared thermography, near-infrared reflectography and transmittography, digital speckle photography, holographic interferometry, and proton magnetic resonance relaxometry. Data were processed by different and innovative methodologies, among which, a calibration procedure of the camera for correlation analyses based on specklegrams. The results were compared, showing a promising synergy for the diagnostic purposes, on the basis of the relationship between structure, properties, and uses of the analyzed materials.
