No. 29

The second in the series of PhotoStatic/Retrofuturism combo issues, No. 29 is, to my mind, one of the more perfectly realized issues in the series, at least in a visual sense. We find ourselves here on the upswing in enthusiasm for the photocopy-derived esthetic that we and our contributors developed in the preceding five years.

Containing concrete poetry, political satire, technical explorations of our chosen medium, and nearly everything in between, this issue’s hodge-podge of graphics and effects works in tension with the rigid rectilinearity of the fat-black-rule page layout. The concluding pages, as usual, make their contribution to networking culture by offering reviews of other works, many in a similar vein, as well as advertisements and announcements for projects and offerings operating in the same ideosphere.
