Soteriou Papermaking Archive

Description

"The purpose of this website is multiple: to visually preserve and document vanishing Indo–Islamic hand papermaking traditions, and as well, to offer free use of any and all images.

Life through time is known by expressions revealed through fine art, manuscripts and preservation of historic and cultural information. All rest upon a quiet substrate – paper. Paper has its own story to tell. Artisans trace their family’s papermaking heritage back generations and through countries in times of peace and times of conquest. Their migrations, family culture and norms, and the techniques and materials they used, are in tandem with history and culture through time. Stories and recollections from elder artisans inspired Alexandra Soteriou to gather and photograph their way of life, papermaking methods and heritage....

Tabs on the left allow the viewer to search for images by subject. Pictures may be freely used but must include one or more of the attributions shown at the Terms of Use tab above. Double click on any of the images to view a high resolution version. Click on the link below the high resolution image to access a download.

The Soteriou Papermaking Archive has been made possible through collaborative effort. Early research and original photography was facilitated in part by a 1985 Fulbright Fellowship and along with decades of subsequent personally funded fieldwork. Digitization of original slide images was accomplished thanks to a 2015 grant from The Islamic Manuscript Association, TIMA. Creation of this website would not have been possible without the continued support of Professor Timothy D. Barrett, The University of Iowa Center for the Book, and The University of Iowa Libraries Special Collections Department and Digital Scholarship and Publishing Studio."

Artists' Books

Description

Artists' Books are books in the form of art objects or art objects in the form of books. They may look more like a codices (bound books) that employ elements from the visual arts, or they may appear more like visual works of art that borrow the vocabulary of books, such as text or pages. Artists make use of many different techniques and forms in creating these books, and most artists' books are produced in limited editions. The Art, Architecture & Engineering Library (AAEL) Special Collections has a growing collection of artists' books in its holdings. These books are available to anyone. Although some of the AAEL's artists' books circulate, the ones featured in this database require more careful handling and are only available for viewing on-site in Special Collections.

Visual Resources Collection Finding Aids

Alternative Titles
Visual Resources Collection
History of Art Department's Visual Resources Collection (VRC)
Description

The History of Art Department's Visual Resources Collection (VRC) maintains nearly two million images of art. The collection's roots are more than 90 years old and developed as a teaching collection to support faculty and students. As the University of Michigan's History of Art Department evolved and became a center for scholarship, so did the VRC collection become an international resource. The VRC, until very recently, has never made their archival holdings public. With the aid of Encoded Archival Description (EAD) files, it is not possible to provide access to finding aids and inventories of our primary resources online. Through the provision of these online finding aids, patrons can connect with the VRC's vast resources of images of art, architecture, and artifacts.
