Description. "Test Patterns for the Human Mind." 
The current issue was a momentous one in our 
history. It marked a decisive shift, away from 
individual works generally displayed one per 
page, toward attempts at more graphically complex 
layouts and a greater than ever before dependance 
on text for content. The issue takes the unusual, 
if not unprecedented, form of two magazines in 
one - marking, at the same time, the début of a 
new "submagazine" called Retrofuturism, occupying 
the bottom inch-and-a-fraction of each and every 
page. Memorable works from this issue include a 
series of images and texts by Steve Harp entitled 
"Photographs within Photographs"; the short but 
richly ironic "The Magritte Flashcard" by R.K. 
Courtney; a splayed booklet by A1 Waste Paper Co. 
Ltd. called "U-Make it (no talent)", which is a 
satire on the Tuyau daily 'zines appearing at the 
time; and all of this amply filled out by other, 
often equally interesting works, as well as the 
reviews, news, and opinions, as is par for this 
particular course.

Contributors include. Ll. Dunn, T. Hibbard, Piotr 
Szyhalski, Jack Moskovitz, Bob Gregory, Joseph 
Keppler, Gregory Cullen, Steve Harp, A.1. Waste 
Paper Co., Greg Zimmer, Thomas Wiloch; Joseph A. 
Uphoff, Jr.; R. K. Courtney, Mike Miskowski, John 
Stickney, Dazar, Steve Perkins, Chris Winkler,

Project Overview: The Photostatic Retrograde 
Archive serves as an electronic repository for a 
complete collection of PhotoStatic Magazine, 
PhonoStatic Cassettes, Retrofuturism, and Psrf, 
(as well as related titles). Issues are posted as 
PDF files, at more or less regular intervals, in 
reverse chronological order to form a 
chronological mirror image of the original 
series. When the first issue, dating from 1983, 
is finally posted in several year's time, then 
this electronic archive will be complete.
