Behind the Printed Word
The JMA tackles head-on the challenge of making two-dimensional material accessible to diverse audiences. An exemplary collaborative process led to a setting for the manuscripts which helps visitors find entry points into the subject matter and feel confident about their ability to navigate the archive.
The resulting design solutions have clear, visitor-focused goals, premised on an understanding that the key to engagement with the Archive is through the people whose writings it contains.
