Spector Cut + Paste: #1-4
Spector cut+paste was a magazine conceived as a permanent workshop—and the beginnings of what would later become Leipzig-based publisher Spector Books. It was in these pages that Spector's editors discovered the themes that still emerge in their publishing program today; here that they learned to balance artistic and publicist practices; here that they began to combine texts, images and typography into their own formats and to explore the content-based aspects of visual design.
Four issues were published between 2001 and 2008, and they are now available in bundled form here. With contributions from Kathrin Röggla, Rimini Protokoll, Slavoj Žižek, Vladimir Sorokin, Tilo Schulz, Mark Hamilton, Christof Gassner, Olaf Nicolai, Aglaia Konrad, Thorsten Krämer, Gitte Villesen and others.
