CLIP/STAMP/FOLD (Barcelona: Actar Press, 2010)
An explosion of little architectural magazines in the 1960s and 1970s instigated a radical transformation in architectural culture, as the magazines acted as a site of innovation and debate. Clip/Stamp/Fold takes stock of seventy little magazines from this period that were published in over a dozen cities. Coined in the early twentieth century to designate progressive literary journals, the term little magazine was remobilized during the 1960s to grapple with the contemporary proliferation of independent architectural periodicals. The terms little and magazine are not taken at face value. In addition to short-lived radical magazines, Clip/Stamp/Fold includes pamphlets and building instruction manuals along with professional magazines that experienced moments of littleness, influenced by the graphics and intellectual concerns of their self-published contemporaries.
CLIP/STAMP/FOLD: The Radical Architecture of Little Magazines 196X - 197X [Actar 2010] features in 672 dynamic pages an amazing group of contributors to the culture of alternative publications in the 1960s and 1970s. Contributors include Peter Eisenman, Anthony Vidler, Bernard Tschumi, Steven Holl, Cynthia Davidson, Mario Gandelsonas, Alison Sky, Suzanne Stephens, William Menking, Peter Murray, Grahame Shane, Robin Middleton, Peter Crump, Chip Lord, Andrea Branzi and more.
