Apparently our first university archivist/historian was a big fan of lamination. This just one of a couple hundred volumes containing some of our earliest university records and history that were meticulously laminated.
I cannot accurately describe how aghast I must have looked while examining these.
My coworker showed them to me today for the first time. My response was, “Well, at least while I’m crying the lamination will protect all the documents from my tears…”
IF YOU LOVE IT, DON’T LAMINATE IT!!
