One of the more lovely resources in the DMU Special Collections is the collection of College of Art Diaries. These were produced in-house by staff and students during the 1940s and 1950s before the practice was stopped in 1962.
They are a showcase of student art work and taken as a whole the collection charts developments and trends in printing, typesetting and lithography. Some of the artists are well known, including Stanley Hickson, Rafal Tajpowski and Rigby Graham.
To celebrate the collection we have made a Flickr album showcasing highlights from each Diary: https://www.flickr.com/photos/dmuspecialcollections/albums/72157652055139518.
The originals are all available to view in the Archive.
