Slowly but surely !

Our progress is slow but sure.
Slow because there are many organizations and individuals we need to meet to explain our project and convince them to contribute, in a way or another. Sure since each meeting allows us to narrow our research and contributes to open new doors.
However, we cannot help but notice that some of the organizations we met do not seem to be eager to share their collections, sometimes for some very unclear reasons... We indeed have a hard time understanding the imperious need to keep a lid on collections benefiting to no one, except maybe a little group of priviledged individuals, who happen to all know each other. And the funniest part is they seem to believe nothing is possible without them... We surely hope to prove them wrong !
So our collection is proceeding with mixed results but we should be able to offer a captivating book full of never published before documents.
To be followed soon !
