Scope and Content

Correspondence relating to the publication of A Way of Life in 1984, drafts and proofs of the book, and photographs from which Ede selected those that form the framework of the book.

Administrative / Biographical History

Jim Ede put together the book 'A Way of Life' both to record what he had created at Kettle's Yard and to share the spirit of Kettle's Yard more widely. He compiled it as carefully as he created Kettle's Yard itself, combining photographs, reminiscences and literary quotations.
