Week 29 July 14 - 18



Completed tasks
---------------

BL/WA Testrun of poster photographs done. 
   The best results are obtained by working indoors in the Jafet Library
   Special Archives with artifical lamps, ordinary negative film and
   an 80.a blue filter. We had hoped to use natural daylight in order
   to record the posters in their "natural environment", but the variations
   in light intensity across the total area was too great and not
   easily controllable. In addition the hot working conditions were
   producing amounts of perspiration that would threaten the posters
   themselves.
