Summary The Touring Exhibitions Group's manual of good practice provides practical guidance for carrying out the many tasks associated with organizing or hosting exhibitions, and will be an invaluable work of reference for all those involved in touring exhibitions. As such, it complements the Standards for Touring Exhibitions, published by the Museums and Galleries Commission (MGC), which are concerned with what should be done and why. Both publications reconcile the practicalities of organizing and touring with current standards and practices in conservation. Touring Exhibitions is both authoritative and comprehensive, thanks to the experience of more than fifty contributors from all over Great Britain, representing a diversity of perspectives and specialisms. Their different themes and subjects are laced together by cross-references, so that the reader can consult the manual at almost any point and be directed to other sections where the original query has implications or consequences
