GAG has had requests from both individuals and organisations for a chance to obtain Technical Papers which have sold out.
These papers have been compiled using photocopies. The original papers are now out of print although some are under revision.
The reader of these papers should be aware that some of the advice is now very dated, particularly as work on information technology and computer aided design has advanced at an enormous pace. However even the old information is of considerable interest in the history of archaeological illustration in general and of GAG in particular.
