Osprey will be working from home from Tuesday 17th March. We plan to continue all our operations, while reducing risk of infection by having staff work from home. Please note that we are doing our best to manage incoming post and parcels. For the time being please refrain from sending items to our offices and please assume that items that you have sent to us, have not arrived with their intended recipient. Our priority remains the wellbeing of staff, authors, customers, freelancers, suppliers and distributors. We would like to thank all for their support whilst we transition to virtual operations.
INTEL is an illustrated archive that has been created so that collectors and authors can utilise its illustrations to further their research projects. This archive is only be available on the internet, and is currently hosted by Osprey Publishing. Issues will be numbered using a letter from the alphabet to denote the year while a number indicates the issue, beginning with A1 to Z10, after that it could be AA1 ( but by that time I\'ll be 80 and somebody younger will have taken my place ). The illustrations per issue will be numbered i.e. A1-22 etc. each number being a reference to the individual photograph or illustration, the accompanying text will give details of the item shown, sometimes this might seem rather vague because that is all that I know about the item or have been told about it from its owner. If more details are known by a viewer then these can be added as comments on each page.


The initial issues will contain items from my collection. It is hoped that with time viewers with collections would also like to contribute to the archive by sending in illustrations / photographs of their own items. There will be no limitations as to country or period, all countries and periods will to be covered if the data is available, my area of interest is South and Central America, the Caribbean and  Hispanic America (Hispanic and French North America), so you might find a fair amount of items from these topics included initially. Hoping that you enjoy this and future issues of “INTEL”
