Glass always inhibits UV and you might think of tying, by testing, some of the digital paper sprays to ward off the UV.
One, rather potent in vapors, is made by Triangle Coatings of San Leandro, CA.
Another, far less potent, and recommended by Wilhelm Research, is Premier Art Print Shield and a similar product from
Moab Paper is called Desert Varnish. It seems to me the Desert Varnish is the same as Print Shield. They all add years to the
life of a chromogenic or inkjest print.

I find this all quite interesting and think I will give it a try. Since I live in western Washington state, I will have to wait several more months until the clouds clear and the sun reappears.

I'm curious, does anyone know if displaying an Anthotype behind UV glass would stop or slow the fading of a print displayed not in direct sunlight but in normal room light?
