Meet Kress Book Conservation Fellow Lydia Aikenhead
We're happy to welcome Lydia Aikenhead for a yearlong Kress Fellowship in Book Conservation! Lydia graduated in 2019 from NYU as a Mellon Fellow in Library & Archive Conservation with an M.A. in Art History and an M.S. in Conservation. During her years at NYU, she interned at institutions in Florence and Oxford, the National Archives and Records Administration in Washington, D.C., and, most recently, at the The Morgan Library & Museum in New York. Above, Lydia treats a beautifully illustrated 15th century book of hours from the collection of a local client.
