An important issue of literary design journal Form featuring articles on the founding of Black Mountain College, an essay by Josef Albers, a map of the Brighton Festival Exhibition of Concrete Poetry, an essay on the early days of concrete poetry by Eugen Gomringer, an article on Kinetism and a feature on 'Great Little Magazines'. The designer and editor Philip Steadman says of the publication 'I designed the magazine, which was in the Swiss manner with a square format, a grid layout, and the Helvetica typeface throughout. It had been my original ambition to carry on publishing until a stack of the complete run formed a cube; but after ten numbers we ran out of money and steam.'
