Series IIb: Project Files 1946–1994

The subseries Project Files consists of materials pertaining to prints, weavings and various other projects completed by Anni Albers, often in collaboration with a printmaker or other organization. Of note among the materials are correspondence, print documentation, lists and notes related to print portfolios and weaving and design reproductions made in collaboration with Tyler Graphics, Gemini G.E.L., Knoll Textiles, Larsen Carpet, and Tamarind Lithography Workshop. Other highlights include material relating to the Harriet Engelhardt Memorial Collection of Textiles, assembled by Anni for Black Mountain College and eventually housed at the Yale University Art Gallery; an original weaving, Ark, commissioned by Temple Emanu-el in Dallas; a Bauhaus postage stamp with Josef Albers’s design; and Josef Albers’s “Learning Never Ends” postage stamp.
