A gift from Charles Burns

The silhouette artist Charles Burns visited again yesterday. We discussed the project's latest advances and various options for ongoing development. At the end of his stay, Charles confirmed his agreement to contribute scans of his entire silhouette collection to the project. His decision to 'Join in' is a real boost for us all. With such a leading light of the silhouette world showing such enthusiasm for the idea of a virtual archive, protecting silhouette heritage from the threats of fire, flood, etc, we have a real evangelist for the project. 

We hope that others will take a lead from Charles and decide to add their works to the system, thereby making the Profiles website the main place of reference for all interested in the art form.
