Launch — Uncanny Magazine #3

Uncanny Edi­tions invites you to the launch of issue 3 of Uncanny Magazine – Pub­lic­a­tion as Pro­cess, with a talk by Kar­en Lacroix, Fri­day, Septem­ber 30th 2011 at X Marks the Bök­ship

Uncanny Edi­tion #3 (soft back with z‑fold, 52 pages, 21 × 29.7 cm, print run 100)

“The aim of this issue is to doc­u­ment and archive an essen­tially visu­al account of ‘pub­lic­a­tion as pro­cess’. 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.”

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 an illus­tra­tion pro­ject for 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.”
