One of the nice things about The Global Worldwide Internet Web of Interests is that you check out art in cities where you maybe can't afford the rent. In that vein, I invite you into the digital gallery of Clip/Stamp/Fold, a new show at the Storefront for Art gallery in NYC. It's a show of architectual proto-zines from the sixties and seventies, and while the content is interesting I'm sure, taken all together, it's a also just a great survey of design trends from the era. Now, I don't know much about architetcure, but Holy Smokes: if this is the design architects come up with, what did the designer's 'zines look like?
(The site is a little hinckey, but looks great: bear with it.)
