Identifier: I.B.

Scope and Contents

Subseries I.B., Unpublished Projects contains materials related to various unfinished and unpublished Digby projects ranging in date from roughly 1980 to 2014. The subseries is arranged chronologically and contains drafts of short stories, poetry and collage poetry manuscripts, book proposals, layouts and mockups of various work, surrealist broadsides, and unidentified translations. Most of the projects in this subseries consist mainly of notes and drafts, and some have not progressed beyond the preliminary planning stage. Included is a proposal and preliminary collage materials for a comic book featuring Leonardo Da Vinci and Mona Lisa as characters; notes and research for an unpublished anthology collaboration with Egyptologist Bob Brier about “the mummy in literature”; a proposal for another collaboration with author Cecil Helman; and an unfinished John Digby novel, set in Australia. Another particular project of note is John and Joan Digby’s “Curators on Collage,” an unpublished anthology related to the study of black-and-white collage. Folders contain the project proposal, research materials, and correspondence between the Digbys and other artists about black-and-white collage.
