Magazine working files and publications

Series comprises material such as files, master copies and dummy copies pertaining to the print publications which Michael Bidner produced or co-produced. These publications include Adz magazine, Rude magazine, Rag magazine booklet, and the London District Union newspaper. In 1976, Bidner launched Adz, which he described as “the magazine as art” and was put out under AMSDAS Publishing (Adz Magazine Subscription Deposit Account Service). Adz was designed to be a magazine with up to 1,000 issues each with print runs of varying size. Bidner created his own issues or invited other artists to compose an issue. Issues were typically named with a single word followed by a number, for example “Bus 24” (numbers did not indicate a unified sequence). The envisioned run of 1,000 issues was never completed. Bidner went on to produce Rude magazine, co-founded with printmaker and owner of Acme Print & Litho, Joe Thomas. The magazine ran from 1977-1983 and operated out of two facilities located in London and Stratford. It was largely printed on found paper acquired by Bidner from various sources. Nine issues of Rude magazine were published. Also during this time, Bidner created Rag magazine (1979-198?) in partnership with Don Gaul and Gary Jack. Rag magazine is a half-sized zine booklet, or a “streetwise chapbook”; six issues were produced. The London District Union (1979-1980) was an arts-based local paper for London, Ontario which published only four issues as a market trial before folding. Carol Off, the television and radio journalist, was an editor for the London District Union.
