Established in 1978, the Archive holds over 200 archives created by individual artists, craftspeople and designers and businesses and societies involved in the manufacture and promotion of art and design products. The Guide describes each archive in detail, offering information about its creator, its contents, and related sources held both inside and outside the V&A Museum. It is an invaluable reference text for everyone with an interest in studying British art and design.
