In an effort to stay current with the latest projects launching through our Archives initiative, we will be periodically checking in to share with you what's new on this corner of the site. This month, we have have eight projects that range in scope from sword illustrations to ska bands to a multimedia tribute to a ceramics factory. Read on for more.
Collecting all 25 years of Tom Tomorrow's comic strip This Modern World — a weekly cartoon of political and social satire and mainstay of alt-weeklies — into a thousand-page, fifteen-pound, two-volume set of books.
A project to republish Michael Bedard's award-winning 1998 children's book and make it available to a new generation of fans.
The third project in an ongoing series of vinyl reissues from New England's Asbestos Records. This time around they're focusing on the punk side of ska, with Thumper, The Flaming Tsunamis, High School Football Heroes and The Suicide Machines receiving reissue status.
Inspired by a collection of moulds from the historic Spode Ceramic Factory in Stoke-on-Trent, at the heart of the British ceramics industry, this multi-tiered project is being created in preparation for the British Ceramics Biennial this fall. It will consist of a photo book, an exhibition, an installation featuring original moulds from the factory, and a poem written by Dan Cockrill. All of these elements will be combined to archive and highlight the story of the Spode Ceramic Factory and its place in Britain's rich industrial past.
A collection of photographs taken with an eye towards preserving the beauty and culture of small town libraries in present day New England. Taken with a 4×5 large format camera, the finished work will eventually be collected into both a photo book and individual prints.
The restoration and reproduction of illustrations from Achillies Marozzo's OPERA NOVA, first printed in 1536. The illustrations will be made available in the form in which they were originally made, printed on Lanaquarelle paper with Vanson ink and hand painted in historically accurate colors. (Want to know more about this kind of restoration? We spoke with the creator, Adelheid Zimmerman, who outlined the process for us.)
And finally, a project to help clean and restore a series of seven 18th century-era Spanish Colonial paintings located in the historic church located in Antigua, Guatemala.
