Our first issue. We knew where we were going, just not how exactly to get there. Still many of the themes and concerns of later issues are apparent in this first magazine. Fences and barriers (as on Robert O’Connor’s cover) would come to be a recurring motif in the next decade. We didn’t have a designer for this issue as far as we recall and it was put together on MS Publisher 98. It was all done in-house and still wears many of the clothes of The Chancer (which will be online as soon as we track issues down) from which it evolved. The PDF is a scan so the quality could be better and the file is rather larger but it started us on a journey that has led us on some very unexpected twists and turns and isn’t over yet.
