In our cover story, Shattered Starlet, we go into detail on how we disassembled, stabilized, and reassembled the silk dress worn by Shirley Temple in her 1935 film The Little Colonel. You can watch the video of Shirley singing Love's Young Dream and see precisely that the areas of damage on the dress are already being stressed. The before and after photographs of this Hollywood costume are among the most dramatic of any MTS project in our 18-year history.
In Andover Figures on Exhibit, we show spectacular photographs of our Andover Figures costume-mounting system being used by our clients to create professional dress exhibits at a fraction of the cost of purchasing high-end museum manikins. More examples of Andover Figures can be found throughout the magazine, both with the Shirley Temple dress and in Honoring Heirlooms, where we employ rare-earth magnets to suspend heavy Chinese robes inside display cases.
We have once again chosen Issuu as the online host for our digital publication, which allows readers to page through on their screen as if the actual magazine were in their hands. Ordering a printout of the magazine has never been easier. Just follow this link to Peecho.
We hope you enjoy the journey through our last year, celebrated through the projects and people we are honored to work with.
