BF Zine 1 — Education

Digitally printed, stapled

Published March, 2013. The first of five publications on civic problems in New York City by BF Bifocals, a working group of multimedia designers and thinkers, this publication was made in collaboration with TheFree School.at/Cooper. In the midst of their fight to keep the Cooper Union free, we released Zine 1 both to document The Free School's battle and investigate challenges and solutions for education in New York.

The material composition of every publication in the series reflects the nature of the problem at hand: we printed Zine 1 by harnessing a large supply of unused printing money allotted to students at New York University. It was available across major independent bookstores in New York City.
