About Exercise Book Archive

The Exercise Book Archive is an ever-growing, participatory archive of old exercise books that allows a glimpse into the history, education, and daily lives of children and youth of the past.
The Exercise Book Archive team works every day, mainly on a voluntary basis, to collect, preserve, and share the testimonies of childhood contained in hundreds of exercise books from the past and from all over the world.


Your support for us is invaluable, because it allows us to make our work sustainable.

Donations received will be used for:
- Digitisation of the material
- Cataloguing of the material
- Content selection 
- Transcription and translation into English
- Website and social media management
- Design, coordination, and development of new activities and projects such as exhibitions, workshops, publications, and seminars
