Magpie at the IISH. Taking requests.

a magpie at the IISH

I’ll be at the International Institute of Social History in Amsterdam for a few days next week doing research, with “research” being defined as “geeking out over anarchist fiction and shit.” I was there last year and photographed a lot of spanish anarchist fiction and some other stuff, which is available online. On Friday, I photographed:

If anyone wants to search the archives and suggest materials for me to photograph, I’d be quite likely happy to oblige.

Here are some more photos of the magpies I saw outside the building. Did you know a group of us is called a “tiding” ?

  1. Hi,
    I realize your offer to shoot fotos of anarchist materials at the IISH is nearly a year old, but if you happen to be in the neighborhood . . . I could use all the shots I can get of Novela Ideales by Adrián del Valle. The IISH holds some 15 at about 30 pages each, if I’m not mistaken. The thing is, I am writing my dissertation on him–more particularly one of his collections of short stories, Por el camino–but I need to read around it to get a bead on his literary and ideological disposition, so I represent him as accurrately as possible, yada, yeada, and I can’t get my hands on his texts.
    That said, I did find your pics of Mi amigo Julio on Flickr, thank you very much.
    For anything you could manage to do, I would be much obliged.
    Thanks, and good day.
