“This is the archive of the books, files and papers of Simon Cutts, poet, publisher, editor of spaces, and plastic artist. … The work itself moves from the text on the page, through the sequence and development of the book, paper and printing as a form intrinsic to the poem, to versions of smaller plastic objects and larger installations as a means of its resolution.
“The archive includes all the books of Simon Cutts, including those in larger formats, and his collaborations with other writers and artists, and his contributions to other publications.
“The manuscript files for many of the books, poems, published and unpublished, and texts and essays are all itemized … Reviews, Educational Projects, Conferences and Readings are indexed. There is also a chronology of the objects made and those not completed, and a listing of the physical objects included with this archive are listed.
“Notebooks, Diaries and Deskbooks go back as far as the late nineteen fifties and are included until the present date. A large section of photographic documentation of objects made, their exhibition and installation, and the photographic documentation of book and card sequences is also listed.
“Correspondence is often included in the working files previously listed, and the remainder is separately indexed in its own section.
“… The archive is completed by extensive bibliographical, biographical and reference sections, and includes a large section on the locations for both Simon Cutts himself and the places in which he has worked and made books and other objects.” — Introduction, with edits
