(Four Minutes to Midnight). Four Minutes to Midnight. Issue Eight. [Montreal] : 23:56, (December 2006). Pp -143,(1). Illustrated. Small 8vo, illustrated card covers. “Four Minutes to Midnight is a visceral reaction to the encounters between: typography and language, language and culture, culture and politics, politics and fear, fear and love, love and sex, sex and death. Between death and memory, memory and the printed page. In the wake of oursadness, joy, anger and hope. This issue is dedicated to the birds… True t o the expansive definition that introduces this issue of the zine, Issue 8 features the diverse work of over 20 international writers and artists. Some personal highlights include Ralph Dfouni’s personal account of the war inLebannon, Vincent Tinguely’s polemical poem Oilers, photography by Brigitt e Henry, a graphic interpretation of Nadia Myre’s scar project, and of course Fugue 8. With the Fugue, I think we finally articulated the core conceptbehind the project; composing all the textual fragments and dialogue we’ve shared into a compelling, 28-page typographic epic.” (from lokidesign).
