The Building Conservation Directory is a guide to suppliers consultants and craftsmen in conservation*. Listings range over lime and thatching, stained glass and measured surveys, and include 100-plus architects. There are specialists too, like bellfounders and subcontractors for mosaic or the exhumation of human remains. In all over 800 organisations are promised for the 1999 edition.

'Promised', because the latest edition of this annual directory was due out several weeks before this aj conservation issue - the latest publication promise is now for the end of May.

As in previous editions, the listings will be interspersed with authoritative if basic articles on conservation. These provide a taste of conservation to newcomers, more than a systematic guide. What is important is the listings of often-small organisations rarely found elsewhere in the editorial or advertisements of the construction press.
