I co-edited and contributed a few essays to Idea Magazine‘s new feature about New Wave/PostPunk independent publications, on newsstands any day now…

One is called “Dot Gain” and is an introduction to independent publications in the late 70s and the early 80s.

The second is a hybrid essay/interview with WET magazine founder Leonard Koren about WET and his life and times.

Special thanks to Mark Dytham and Astrid Klein for their assistance in researching the essay!
