TAB 2018

The 2018 print issue amplifies the qualities in aesthetics and materials of ephemera as the main framework to poetry. Damien Gautier contributes his photography of urban typography showcasing various words, letters, and signs that TAB rearranged and layered, calling attention to the arbitrary size and two dimensions of both the physical photograph and the postcard. In today’s world of excessive materials in a disposable culture, TAB revisits the function and permanence in a collection of postcards. We examine the origin and value of a postcard as a record of personal travel, propaganda, and advertisement and how some collections end up being documents of preservation.

The Volume 6 online issues were the last originally produced for the Open Journal Systems platform that TAB used until its re-launch in January 2020.
