Post-Factory Photography is certainly the best underground do-it-yourself alternative-process photography magazine on the planet, containing no end of arcane
information. The magazine quickly becomes an indispensable reference for anyone interested in alternative processes.
Post-Factory Photography is edited by Judy Siegel and published by Post-Factory
Press, 61 Morton Street, New York, NY 10014. A four-issue subscription is $24. (Please add $6 for overseas airmail and $10 airmail to the Pacific and Asia.) Editions are
limited, so get them while they last. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
For a time I was trying to review each issue as it came out, but I am hopelessly behind
now, so I thought I would just try to provide a list of the major articles in each issue.
