Today’s stacks find is The Be-Cause Look Book(1973), an epiphany of subverted logos and presstype:
This book is a notebook a sketchbook….It is a work of people and machines. This book is a look book. It is a picture book for revolutionaries and artists. It is a way—for those who wonder about being here now.
It was also “the cooperative effort of many different people,”
but they elude this librarian. Is there a Shiva Queeney out there?
The alternative nature of Be-Cause fits well with other 1970s titles by the publisher, Links Books. Their eclectic subjects included street art, breakfast recipes, leftist memoirs, and Spiritual Cannibalism (1973. Here’s an unverified web version).
Back in the day we filed Be-Cause under Civilization, Modern — 1950- — Miscellanea. We should revisit that. -jt
