(Publishers overview) 'Are you fed up with reading the same stuff everywhere? March 1992 sees the first issue of a new journal, Vagabond. 84 pages (perfect bound), it carries new writing, graphics, photographs, press cuttings, wartime propaganda leaflets, signage systems and text mosch, and is designed and produced by Touch.

Edited by Jon Wozencroft and Jon Savage, contributors in this first issue include Neville Brody, Jamie Reid, Simon Frith on the break-up of the Soviet Union, Caroline Coon, photographs from Helga Paris of East Berlin in the early 80s, an interview with Martin Hannett - Factory producer by Jon Savage, Cornel Windlin, articles by Panni Charrington, Adair Brouwer, Michael Harding. Annie Sprinkle (on 101 healthy uses for sex), Mark Sinker on the aftermath of the Poll-Tax riots, Mark Issue, Doro Franck, The Hafler Trio ('The Gathering of Opposites'), the hazards of squatting by Matthew Pond, Socrates, TV Smith, an interview with Alan Oversby, the body-piercer whose work, having been published by RE/SEARCH, was criminalised under an arcane 19th Century law covering unlawful wounding, and Jon Wozencroft on Van Driver Gangs plus images by Panni Charrington, Danielle Hayes, Z'EV, Russell Haswell, Malcolm McLaren, Hannah Hoch and others.

Time to up the ante: Vagabond is a line through the chaos of communication. The great equation of our age is MORE LESS. The great lie of our age is POPULAR POPULIST. The great war of our age is THE TARGET AUDIENCE = AN UNCRITICAL AUDIENCE. Sex, War, Politics, Perception, Pop-read here what you won't find elsewhere.'
