28th March: First Day working in the archive

After an initial introduction session to the archive I was allowed to spend my first day working with the materials alone. Intitially I have decided to concentrate on the materials relating to the Tie-Dyed Paper book which Anne published in 1975. Items include photographs, letters, manuscripts, transparencies and negatives which are mixed with other various items in a box. I am currently in the process of recording and photographing or scanning each item where appropriate whilst making brief notes for each item I encounter which is not linked to Tie Dyed Paper as i go along in the hope that i will be able to come back to these items and list them. Next up the portfolio of Tie Dye samples!
