Light, affordable, and foldable, periodicals travel from writer and artist to printer, from mail service or digital platform to reader. These circuits of ideas, practices, and readerships innovate across print technologies, illustration, graphic design, and forms literary and artistic.
‘Periodical time’—the monthly, the fortnightly, the weekly, or the one-off issue—is one way of developing diverse publics, with spaces including popular, cultural, and literary magazines; newspapers; self-published zines; artist-run publications; and journals.
