Materiality is a themed journal that includes essay, images, fiction
and poetry, focusing on the physical and the material.  Issue two is
now available, with the theme of "Time"

The magazine is aimed at a general audience but contains articles by
and of interest to conservators.  Topics in this issue include
clocks and watches, timetables and time travel, growth and decay.
You may enjoy "Sense and Sempiternal-ability" by MaryJo Lelyveld,
about the 10,000 year clock and how to last forever, Helen Gill's
drawings of cracks in paintings, or Alex Ellem's essay on the
development of the calendar ("Patterns of the past, portals to the
future").  There are also contributions by letterpress printer Caren
Florance ("Do it for the love: letterpress and time") and watchmaker
Tom Ashton ("What's in a watch?").  The hard copy features two sets
of flip-book illustrations (time-based art in miniature!) by
Albertine Hamilton and Gracia & Louise, and a small zine in the back
pocket by Mike Lynch.

Materiality can be purchased at


The hard copy and digital bundle is AU $15 (plus postage); the
digital only version (PDF and EPUB) is AU $4.99.

DistList readers may also be interested in contributing to future
issues.  Materiality welcomes contributions from conservators,
curators, materials scientists, photographers, hobbyists,
craftspeople, authors, artists, engineers and many others.   Each
issue will have a different theme; the theme of the next issue is
"Precious" (in production); submissions for "Surface" will be due 30
March 2014.
