Double issue nos. 5–6 of this Italian avant-garde artists’ magazine edited by Eugenio Miccini. Tèchne was established as a response to commercial publishing with its assembled nature and featured both artistic and political contributions by a global network of artists in the late ’60s and early ’70s. This issue with contributions by experimental and concrete poets, writers, and artists from around the world, including Betto, Fried Rosenstock, Cesare Vivalde, Mario and Maria Luisa Santella, Bruno Leo, Timm Ulrichs, Luciano Ori, Stan Brakhage, Giuisi Coppini, Lourdes Castro, Egidio Mucci, Giuliano Della Casa, Christian Tobas, Serge Oldenbourg, Sarenco, Michele Perfetti, Giovanni Corallo, Jirí Valoch, and Gruppo Sessere among others.
Very good overall given its assembled nature, with wear along extremities, rubbing to covers, and bumps to corners. With age toning throughout on account of the paper quality, save for signatures printed on better paper. Inserted folder with wear along edges on account of it being larger than the magazine.
