First post, bark bark!
I'm excited to get started with this little project of mine! I haven't even finished construction on this website, but I've already gotten started on my first archival projects- being these Anthrocon Conbooks that have just been laying in my kitchen for years XD
These are from AC 2016 and AC 2017. I wanted to start with something like this, that's very recent and well documented, to get a hang of my scanning and documenting process without too much stress. These are so recent someone probably has the original ready for print PDF on their computer somewhere, so there were super low stakes as I trial and errored myself into getting these on the archive.
And errors there were MANY. I started with the 2016 book, and you can see for yourself there's some crooked pages and the like (that I may go back and redo later if I get the time). I am doing this just had my own house with my everyday home office scanner, and am deciding whether or not it'll be worth spending an hour or two at a Fedex Office every now and then for the benefit of scanning two pages at a time on their larger machines. For now though, lots of shuffling on my tiny scanner and trying my best. Another way these were a helpful start is that I didn't feel the need to be as overly delecate with them as I plan to be when I get some of my older, less common stuff- I just completed a purchase for some issues of a dream series I've been wanting to get my hands on for awhile, and I'll be treating those with the care I'd treat a first edition Action Comics XD
I know I have some more conbooks somewhere- one I especially want to find was Anthrohio- I can't remember if it was 2014 or 2015, but I had my own art in the conbook which is always fun to see! But until I find those books and get some more comics in the mail, here's the first submissions to the archive! How exciting, bark bark!
2016 is up now, 2017 to come!
