SPIRAL No. 6, January 1986

Pasadena, CA: Spiral Group, 1986. First Edition. Issue number six of "SPIRAL" magazine. Edited by Los Angeles Filmforum founder Terry Cannon, the magazine ran for nine issues between 1984 and 1986, and according to David James' "The Most Typical Avant-Garde" represented "the only sustained attempt in Los Angeles to create a periodical about avant-garde film."

James goes on the say the magazine "ignored the theoretical framework then current in academic or art world scholarship; rather taking its stand outside those institutions... SPIRAL looked to sustain a kind of folk cinema... and a demotic community around it."

Spiral bound in oblong card wrappers, with a transparency laid in as part of a "Moving Collage." Lightly soiled and Near Fine.
