. ISCA Quarterly Volume 6 – Number 4: Third Annual Bookworks Edition, 1988

NY: ISCA, 1988. A complete set of 53  items + catalogue and membership application, housed in a cardboard box that also doubled as the shipping container. Issued in a limited edition of 200 copies, with many of the individual items being hand-numbered and signed. All items are fine/as issued, with no more than incidental toning and wear. The only exception is Yve Morse’s “Earth’s Memories: A Photocopy Album,” which was originally bound with dowel and rubber band, the latter having long since broken. The box shows wear, bumping, tape-remnants, etc. consonant with having passed through the mail system, and the original owner’s address has been removed from the top panel, resulting in a surface abrasion.

The International Society of Copier Artists (ISCA) was founded in 1981 by Neaderland as a way to promote the work of copier artists, and to help legitimize that process as a serious artistic methodology. The ISCA Quarterly ran from 1982 to 2003; beginning in 1986, ISCA issued an Annual Bookworks Edition, comprised of artists’ books produced by organization members.

The Third Annual Bookworks Edition offered here consists of 53 artists’ and a corresponding catalogue. Neaderland’s own contribution includes two different versions of her zine OPEN ROADS-EMPTY NESTS, along with a photocopied letter discussing some of the conceptual and technical problems she encountered during its various phases of production. Other items range from single-fold photocopied sheets, to elaborately designed and bound book arts; please see photos for representative examples, or contact us for more information about individual items.

Per ISCA conventions, each item has a number stamp, allowing it to be more easily correlated with its entry in the catalogue, which also includes a pink errata slip explaining several mis-stamped items. In going through the contents, we found two additional errors in the form of items that failed to receive a number stamp altogether.A nice example of ISCA’s ambitious and unequivocally charming Bookworks format, examples of which are exceedingly uncommon in the trade
