AA Archives: Janet Jack (nee Kaye) drawings donated

Janet Jack (nee Kaye) has kindly donated to the AA Archives several of her projects from 1957, including her ‘Open Borstal for Girls’ and ‘Bird Observatory, Annett Island, Scilly isles’. The observatory¬†was proposed to be built from loose rocks and boulders which lay scattered across the island. To quote Cedric Price “At the time I was infuriated by the staggering consistency of [the observatory’s] sophisticated primitive hut aesthetic and impressed by the facility with which it was produced…The elevation of the island is still one of my favourite AA drawings.” This latter drawing has not been scanned yet but will be made available online once the collection of drawings have been properly catalogued.
