Clip, Stamp, Fold: The Radical Architecture of Little Magazines 196x to 197x


An explosion of little architectural magazines in the 1960s and 1970s instigated a radical transformation in architectural culture, with the magazines acting as a site of innovation and debate.

Clip/Stamp/Fold takes stock of seventy little magazines from this period. The book brings together a remarkable range of documents and original research which the project gathered and produced between 2002 and 2006.

The book features transcripts from "Small Talks" events where editors and designers were invited to discuss their magazines; a stocktaking of over 100 significant issues that tracks the changing density and progression of the little magazine phenomenon; transcripts of more than forty interviews with magazine editors and designers from all over the world; a selection of magazine facsimiles; and a fold out poster that offers a mosaic image of more than 1,200 covers examined during the research.
