Edited by Vito Acconci and Bernadette Mayer, 0 to 9 is widely considered one of the most experimental and influential publications of the mimeograph and small press movement in America. Published in six issues from 1967 to 1969 in New York City, 0 to 9 also published a supplement titled Street Works and books by Aram Saroyan, Bernadette Mayer, Vito Acconci, and Rosemary Mayer, along with three booklets that constituted Adrian Piper’s first solo exhibition. 0 to 9 was especially engaged in the particulars of the page and inscriptions upon it, emphasizing aspects of performance, minimalism, multi-disciplinarity, and concrete approaches to language. Given small print runs of 100 to 350 copies per issue, the original publications of 0 to 9 are exceedingly rare. This present collection includes all issues of the magazines and all book publications with the exception of Rosemary Mayer's 41 Fabric Swatches (1969).
