A small number of records found across our themed searches allow you to browse volumes, catalogues, and manuscripts which have been digitised in full. The link below brings together these special records so you can easily find browsable versions of pattern, shape, recipe, and sketch books… and more.
To mark the second anniversary of the launch of the Minton Archive website we made a digital version of Pattern Book No. 1 (SD 1705/MS2287) available online. Since then we’ve greatly expanded the number of multi-page items accessible in the online catalogue and will continue to do so wherever possible.
The presence of the “Book Reader” tab in the catalogue’s record view indicates that an item has been full digitised. Click on the tab to access the document viewer; the fullscreen button opens a larger viewer in a new window.
