This is an archival platform that seeks to unearth a portrait of Lithuanian printed matter published between the 1960s and 1990s. Today, it symbolizes history and can be used to exhibit a portrait of a country that does not exist anymore. The initial idea, that started as a final year project in university, now functions as a research platform for anyone who is looking for inspiration, celebration, and visualization of graphic design history. The archive contains documents, magazines, books, do-it-yourself manuals, postcards. It is a collection of a printed medium that could have been found in every house during the Soviet era in Lithuania. In this case, all of the material traces in this archive have been found in my grandparents that have stayed here as documents of communist everyday life. If you are willing to contribute at expanding the archive, get in touch at archivephemera@gmail.com.
