It would be better to scan them (or photograph them) and publish on your site for information you could also allow people to download the original digital text or the images.

There is something nice about having a photo of the actual publication though.

A Series article is now well underway and nearing completion.

I just need a snappy title. "The A Team" seems a bit corny, but it's something to fall back on!
