We are pleased to announce pre-orders for The Bulletin of Lost Signals, #1. In the spirit of punk fanzines, the BLS will provide the latest news, scuttlebutt from various signal-collecting communities, critique of the apparatus that currently holds political and cultural power, and, of course, one-of-a-kind artifacts. To wit:
- a typed, Xeroxed newsletter featuring a a brief history of the archive, a list of the most recent acquisitions, and a statement on the “degrowth” movement
- three (3) original, one-of-a-kind paper ephemera inserts, spanning various historical periods, duplicates from the archive
- two (2) sections of 16mm film frames from an obscure 1962 South American horror film.
- the url to a short lost signal video not publicized and not available through any other source
The print-run for the very first bulletin is limited to 25. While the precise exchange value is (and will remain forever) unknown, $6.00 U.S dollars will offset the production and mailing costs.
The 2017 publication schedule:
- Issue #1 – “Degrowth” – mailing date: 30 June
- Issue #2 – “Julia Kristeva” – mailing date: 30 July
- Issue #3 – “Maya Deren” – mailing date: 15 September
