As Team East finished cataloguing the unique Robert Smail’s Printing Works, we decided to reflect on our past year at Project Reveal using the property’s amazing collection of type.

Project Reveal is a Trust-wide collections digitisation project. It will result in an updated database with high-quality images and unique object numbers for every item in the National Trust for Scotland’s material culture collections. Six regionally based project teams, supported by experienced project managers, will work across all our properties with collections to complete the inventory in 18 months, from July 2017 until December 2018.
