Special color issue.
Released to inaugurate The Serving Library' s new red, gold, and green space in Liverpool, this issue is both printed in and concerned with color. It includes Emily Gephart's account of the Spectra
Poetry Hoax of 1916, a truncated phone call from Dexter Sinister to Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, the late, great Muhammad Ali
discussing skin color in a 1971 TV interview, reflections on the history of Chroma-key green by Lucas Benjamin, a personal history of paint and painting by Amy Sillman
, and further contributions by T. E. White, Umberto Eco, Stuart Bertolotti-Bailey, Tamara Shopsin, and James Langdon.
Bulletins of The Serving Library
is a composite printed / electronic publication from the duo Stuart Bailey
and David Reinfurt,
that follows a direct line from Dot Dot Dot
, the semi-annual journal founded in 2000 and published by Dexter Sinister
. Across the arts and into philosophy, the “bulletins” that make up each issue are first published online as PDFs at www.servinglibrary.org
over a six-month period, then assembled, printed and distributed separately in Europe (by Sternberg Press) and in the U.S.A. (by Dexter Sinister). Each collection makes up a semester's worth of loosely-themed material, with its constituent PDFs grouped together on the website.
