BAG: The Student Magazine

Posted on December 10, 2013 | in Archives, Collections | by

Exciting morning so far! We’ve been sorting through prints and posters for the ECA collections and found something interesting…

Earlier in the year we posted a story in the archives about BAG, the concept for a joint art colleges student magazine between Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee in 1970. The magazine was to be called BAG and it would be sold in a polythene bag.

BAG1

Well we found the prototype ‘BAG’ this morning! And here it is…

BAG2

We think this is the only one created. The idea was that the contents would be unbound. This prototype contains poetry, illustrations and comment.

Anyone remember talk of BAG at ECA in 1970? If so let us know!
