My name is Oli Cowling and I am part of the photography team working on the Archives & Access project. My job is to assist the digitisation of around 52,000 items from the archive collection. So far we have had the great privilege (and a few surprises) with working with unique and varied material. Over a series of three posts, I want to share with you some of the highlights I've been working on

Nigel Henderson – Mr and Mrs Paolozzi

These images are the document of the early creative partnership between Henderson, Freda and Eduardo Paolozzi.

They went on to form Hammer Prints Limited – a commercial venture that worked with other designers to produce wallpaper, textiles and furniture.
