Davinci Vol. 1, No. 1, 1973


Here is an image gallery of Davinci, Vol. 1, No. 1, published at the Véhicule Art artist-run centre in Montreal in 1974 and featuring the work of various authors and artists. It was published and edited by Allan Bealy. Click here for the issue in PDF format:Da-Vinci_1bw

This is very much the kind of small collectively published title that would have been called a “zine” by the end of the 1970s, due to its mix of contemporary and experimental graphics, collage art, photography, and literary work.

This copy of Da Vinci was lent by Endre Farkas, a Véhicule poet, and digitized in 2015 by Archive Montreal. Reproduced with permission from the publisher; all rights reserved by the authors and artists. Here are select pages from the issue:
