NOTES FROM UNDERGROUND - STEPHEN DUNCOMBE
'From their origins in early 20th century sci-fi cults to their rapid proliferation in the wake
of punk rock, zines have established themselves as vital political and networking tools.
Stephen Duncombe explores the history and theory of zines and analyses the practice of revelling against a consumer society that cannibalises cultural rebellion.
This richly illustrated and researched study of zine culture is the first of it's kind and gives us a definitive guide to the contemporary underground'

FANTASTIC ARCHITECTURE - eds. Dick Higgins and Wolf Vostell
"This documentation of ideas and concepts of a new polymorphous reality is offered as evidence of the methods and processes that were introduced by FLUXUS, HAPPENINGS, and POP. A demand for new patterns of behaviour - new unconsumed ENVIRONMENTS. The accent in all of the works in this book lies on CHANGE - i.e. EXPANSION of physical surroundings, sensibilities, media, through disturbance of the familiar. ACTION IS ARCHITECTURE! EVERYTHING IS ARCHITECTURE! . . . our projects - our environments are meant to free man. ONLY THE REALIZATION OF UTOPIAS WILL MAKE MAN HAPPY AND RELEASE HIM FROM HIS FRUSTRATIONS! use your imagination! Join in ... share the power! share property!" - from the introduction.
