hardcore fanzine: good and plenty, 1989-1992 (2019/DRAW DOWN)

HARDCORE. Focused on 7 issues of "good and plenty" Fanzine produced in the late '80s/early '90s, "hardcore fanzine..." looks at the series through the lens of graphic design and typography, as a project that reflected and embodied technology of the period. Contributions from graphic designers, graphic design educators, and hardcore enthusiasts trace the history of fanzines and photoduplication; the idea of the body in punk and hardcore; how fanzine-making created community and alternative social space in a pre-internet era; key typefaces used in straight edge iconography; and the importance of fanzines to successive generations of designers. "hardcore fanzine: good and plenty, 1989-1992" includes the full reproduction of all 7 issues plus reproductions of a selection of the fanzine's original paste-ups and photography.
