The Hyman Archive includes a continuously growing self-acquired collection of over 54,000 magazines from over 2,500 different publications. It is ‘The World’s Largest Collection of Magazines’ (Guinness, 2012).
In July 2011, the archive was taken out of storage and the process of fully cataloguing the collection began. The archival process is now finished, taking just under 12 months to complete. The archive is now a fully functioning cultural resource and is pleased to have contributed to the V&A’s ‘David Bowie Is’ exhibition.
