Call for Nominations for the 2018 Award
The Association for Preservation Technology International (APT) established the Lee Nelson Book Award in 2000 to recognize outstanding and influential publications in the field of preservation technology. It is conferred every three years, and the last award was presented in 2015 to Historic England for the Practical Building Conservation series, published in association with Routledge. The previous winners of the award are listed on the APT website. A complimentary registration for the conference at which the award is presented is part of the award. The recipient receives a framed certificate at the APT conference. The award-winning publication is reviewed or excerpted in APT’s peer-reviewed journal, the APT Bulletin, if it has not already been reviewed.
APT was created in 1968 as a not-for-profit educational corporation to promote research, training and the dissemination of information relating to preservation technology. Members include architects, conservators, engineers, historians, landscape architects, contractors, artisans, technicians, curators and others involved in the conservation of historic buildings, sites and artifacts.
