As a Recognised Collection, GSA was able to successfully apply for a £36,988 grant to conserve and digitise an important four volumes of work by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and his contemporaries dating from the mid 1890s.
Known simply as the GSA Magazine these volumes continue to provide important source material for researchers and individual volumes have been loaned to a number of major exhibitions in the UK and overseas.
An accompanying website was created that allowed for the GSA Magazine to be viewed in its entirety and made available in digital ‘flip-book’ form, alongside valuable biographical and contextual information relating to the artists represented within the volumes, thereby increasing accessibility whilst reducing the need for the original volumes to be handled.
Unfortunately, support for Adobe Flash (software) ended in 2021, and it was blocked by most web browsers. As a result The Magazine website was decommissioned and a project to rebuild the site is under review. However, you can still view images of all the pages within each volume in our Archive Catalogue. More information and images are also available on VADS.
