The Computer Artist's Forum, a collective artworks limited edition quarterly, vol.2, no. 2 for Summer 1996 is made in an edition of 100. Published in Rancho Mirage, California, not Silicon Valley, this periodical is made of artists who make 100 copies of their digitized and computer artwork. As a result, this is a cutting edge group of artists who have created this "Assembling" in the new technology. All you have to do to include yourself is to meet a deadline (their anniversary edition had as its deadline 15 August) and then make 100 copies of your work, including a page if you wish to tell how you did it. This is a great addition to any collection, for it reflects the new technology, yet continues in the tradition of so many other collaborative publications to this day. This is a beautifully conceived work of art as a creative outlet for computer artists. You can order subscriptions from Computer Artist's Forum, P.O. Box 806, Rancho Mirage, CA 92270 or send $35.00 to Printed Matter for this issue.
Ohio #4 continues to be one of the most exciting periodicals published today This Dusseldorf-based periodical is dedicated to photography--and this issue is dedicated to the building of a bridge over the Rhine, the only text being reproductions of newspaper articles According to the colophon, 90% of the photographs were originally in color. All of the pages with multiple images are in black and white, but the story goes without "telling" in words. Instead, the pictures illustrate the slow progress of the building of this bridge. It is dynamic. $9.00
Burger #1 is a cartooned zine out of Brooklyn, New York. This is an assembling of many cartoonists each with different stories in different styles. $4.00 for a very well made zine. And cartoons galore!
