Dear Su, have you ever considered making your own slides? Just get
your camera with slide film and take your favorite art books outside
on a nice sunny day. Get a steel bar or something heavy to hold
everything nice and flat. If you can't get in close enough you
can use black electrical tape to mask in your slide to the good parts.
My homemade ones aren't the best, but I usually make up for sloppy
technique by my enthusiasm talking about works I really like. A long
time ago the librarian and I wrote a grant to get a set of 500 slides--
the ones in the catalogs. They're great and everything but I probably
only use 60 of them--and try to find slides of great installations or
Andy Goldsworthy work. It still costs you, but maybe your principal
will be willing to pay for film and development--it makes them sound
soooo cheap to refuse when you're doing all the work!! Sid
