I'll close by mentioning that the pictorial archives also throw up quite unexpected things.  I was finishing a stint in the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery in, I think, February 1998, when then curator David Hansen suggested I might be interested in the contents of a cardboard box, which had recently come to light in a cupboard.  These contents were some 51 watercolour miniatures of the English and Scots poor, named, individuated, and unique.  The artist was a John Dempsey.  I won't say much about them, save to mention that David has done a great deal of work on them, and that perhaps you too might bombard him with insistent emails that he writes the book that only he has the knowledge to write, because I think they should enter the public realm.  They also show what systematically working through the material objects that are works on paper can throw in your way.
