From the Archives 2: 2019

A remarkable set of photographs illustrating the transformation of Manchester in the 60s and 70s rediscovered by the Modernist Society in the archives of Chethams Library.

The full collection of the second set of our From The Archives series presented in a special limited edition box set.

From The Archives 2 : Deconstruction/Construction, is a collaboration with Manchester’s historic Chethams Library, presenting images from their slide collection.

Together with Richard Brook we have curated a series of 6 photo books each focussing on the demolition and rebuilding of Manchester. The majority of these images are rarely seen and have never been in print before. The images are historical, from the 1960s and 70s, and were scanned from the original slides.

The individual books are beautifully litho printed in full colour and are themselves limited edition.

Get all six books before everyone else by buying this lovely box set - hand numbered and limited to 100.
