Publication as Process, the title of issue 3 of Uncanny Magazine, is divided into two sections:
1) a reproduction of a publication produced as part of the image-making process for
a design commission from the English Touring Opera, in its original size and form;
2) a selection of 11 of the 23 publications produced whilst making illustrations
for the aforementioned design project.
The idea of making several publications during the illustration/ design process is a way
of creating a platform for critical awareness. Not only does it generate space for discussion
with other people, but promotes a big variety of solutions and alternatives to the work
being produced, thus increasing the possibility of making a more considered
and reflected decision through the act of publishing. The aim of this issue is
to document and archive an essentially visual account of ‘publication as process’.
Dimensions: 29.7 x 21 cm, 52p.
