Primary Information

Primary Information is a non-profit organization devoted to printing artists books, artist writings, out of print publications and editions. Primary Information was formed in 2006 by Miriam Katzeff and James Hoff to foster intergenerational dialogue through the publication of artists’ books and writings by artists—emerging, mid-career, and established. Our period of focus is from the early Sixties to the present, with an emphasis on the conceptual practice begun in the mid Sixties and the strategy of using publications as an extension of this practice.

Fear Indexing the X-Files

By Nora Khan, Steven Warwick.

In this extended illustrated essay, artists Steven Warwick and Nora Khan analyze key episodes of The X- Files to address the evolving climate of fear during the Clinton era, which marked the birth of the commercial internet and a new era of networked communication and deregulated neoliberalism.

Tuli Kupferberg: Yeah



This volume collects all ten issues of the classic 1960s zine Yeah, edited by Fugs pioneer and poet Tuli Kupferberg and his wife Sylvia Topp, as facsimile editions. Originally published by Kupferberg and Topp’s Birth Press between 1961 and1965, the magazine was, according to Kupferberg, a satyric excursion; a sardonic review; a sarcastic epitome; a chronical of the last days,” and throughout its pages he acts as both editor and artist, threading the needle of leftist politics with the sharp wit for which he became known as one of the founders of the counterculture rock heroes The Fugs.

Modern Love

By Constance DeJong.

People used to tell me, if you keep on writing maybe you’ll make a name for yourself,” New York–based artist and writer Constance DeJong (born 1950) wrote in Modern Love. They were right: My name’s Constance DeJong. My name’s Fifi Corday. My name’s Lady Mirabelle, Monsieur Le Prince, and Roderigo. Roderigo’s my favorite name. First I had my father’s name, then my husband’s, then another’s. I don’t know. I don’t want to know the cause of anything.”
Modern Love, DeJong’s first book, was published in 1977 by Standard Editions, an imprint co-founded by DeJong and Dorothea Tanning. In 1978, the . . . .go to book page >>

Douglas Huebler: Variable Piece 4: Secrets



This facsimile edition of Variable Piece 4: Secrets, originally published by Printed Matter, brings this legendary artist’s book by Douglas Huebler (1924–97) back into print. Simple and salacious, the publication collects over 1,800 secrets written by visitors to the 1970 Software exhibition at the Jewish Museum, providing a fleeting glimpse into the cultural, political and social preoccupations of the era while showcasing Heubler’s open-ended and variable approach to art-making. Pioneers of the artist’s book medium, of which Huebler was one, predicted that one day artists’ books would be sold next to detective and romance novels in drugstores and supermarkets throughout . . . .go to book page >>
