The English rave flyers of the 1990s are witnesses of an iconic phenomenon in electronic music culture. I chose to review 99 flyers from my personal collection. The idea is to analyze each cropped item in a catalog; photographs, illustrations, logos, symbols, maps and typography. The opening of this edition took place on the internet and offered to spectators the opportunity to experience a virtual evening in which they could listen to the music of the Djs present on the selected flyers. The common experience of this hybrid project tends to bring these flyers back to life, while taking into account the time in which we look at them in order to wonder what our relationship is to these printed archives in the era of social networks.
