Uniformagazine 8


Uniformbooks is an imprint for the visual and literary arts, cultural geography and history, music and bibliographic studies. The uniformity of the format and the expansive variety of the list and its subjects, is characteristic of our open approach to publishing. The printed quarterly Uniformagazine ran to ten issues, from 2014 to 2017, gathering contributions by the writers and artists that we work with, sometimes thematically, as well as slighter or singular content.

This issue features: Self-build Brian Lewis. Stick with it Stuart Mugridge. Starbucks Joy Drury Cox. A Box of Disquiet Tim Hopkins. Portraits of John Mordaunt… Tony Hayward. Weighed John Aubrey / Josef Albers. Remembering ‘Dawn Chorus’ John Bevis. Subway Joy Drury Cox. Between something and nothing Éilis Kirby. Bunched Watercress labels.

It had been five years since publishing their first title, Anticipatory history, the result of an invitation to participate in a research network about accounts of environmental change, and the request to “make a book”, as a residue of what was explored. It took the form of a glossary, with individual contributors writing up their interpretations of the varied topics and terms that had been prominent in the discussions. Unwittingly, this book became the model for an approach, both in terms of a physical format, and also as an editorial strategy, combining ‘research’—be it scholarly or artistic—with a determinedly flexible and collaborative engagement with ‘the book’…

Uniformagazine continues to gather and include material directly related to their book publishing programme, as well as a variety of expansive subjects, not intendedly urban or rural in theme, but as a regular vehicle to enable us to continue looking in all directions, waiting to see what might be coming along next.”
