McSweeney's News Release

McSweeney's Quarterly

Each issue of Timothy McSweeney's Quarterly Concern is completely redesigned; there have been hardcovers and paperbacks, an issue with two spines, an issue with a magnetic binding, an issue that looked like a bundle of junk mail, and an issue that looked like a human head.

In addition to chronicling the editing process of the Quarterly, the archive documents the design and production behind each issue with

  • Final proofs and notes relating to design and publication
  • A wide array of original art, sketches, production materials, price quotes, and printer samples, documenting the critically important visual life of the journal
  •
