Editor's Notes

Introducing The Archivist Edit Book – a celebration of Liberty’s legendary print archive, spanning the full story behind its existence.

Tracing the line of the brand’s ground-breaking design history from 1875 to the present day, the archive lies at the very heart and soul of Liberty. The 50,000-strong collection is protected and maintained by Head Archivist Anna Buruma, who for the last 25 years has been transforming it into a world-class, cutting-edge design resource. Take a trip through the pages of The Archivist Edit to discover a never-before-seen glimpse of this uniquely precious print institution, as we explore the story behind the designers, printers and art movements that made us.

“Helping to create this book with its focus on the Liberty archive has been a joy – it has been so interesting to see and hear what other people have to say about our history.” – Anna Buruma, Head Archivist
