First issue of the important art and culture journal. With its iconic unadorned cover design the first volume set out its intention : ‘October will be plain of aspect, its illustrations determined by considerations of textual clarity. These decisions follow from a fundamental choice as to the primacy of text and the writer’s freedom of discourse’. The first issue is representative of a concern to blend visual art and theory. Contributions from Michel Foucault, Noel Burch on Japanese Film, Rosalind Krauss on video and narcissism, and Hollis Frampton ‘Notes on Composing in Film’.
