Publication appeal: Unseen Images

Friends of the Petrie Museum

I am very attached to the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology (London, U.K.), so here's a ruthless appeal on the behalf of their forthcoming publication, which looks like an excellent enterprise.

An appeal for the publication of Unseen Images: the photographic archive in the Petrie Museum Volume 1 - Gurob, Sedment and Tarkhan has been launched. The publication will include some of the Petrie Museum's extensive archive of unpublished glass and other negatives that cover excavations dating bakc to Petrie's own first experiments with excavation photography. The entire archive of photographs need to be digitized and conserved. All contributions will be acknowledged in the publications and donors of £50.00 and more will receive a copy of the book. The appeal closes on the 21st January 2008. Donations should be sent to: Friends of the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology, Malet Place, London, WC1E 6BT.
