The use of the archives, a library built up over several decades, provides a place for new articles and unpublished illustrations, of course, but also an opportunity to revitalize old texts and their illustrations published over the years in magazines that have now disappeared or in books that have long been out of print.
Thanks to our dissemination capabilities, we also very much wish to offer good authors/researchers a great opportunity to make their work and merits known.
