Yes I think they should be archived, I am scanning these myself which will be put on the BA gallery in the future.

They should be scanned just as any other release. 600dpi+, tif or png, with margins, no post-processing, packed up and uploaded to the FTP.

What about the pages themselves? Should each one be simply scanned and packed up?
