Christophe Behrens, Editor; Design, Fehler | Primer 02 - Code
SRA2 Two Colour Offset Sheet with Brass Binding Screws | F.0003.0002
Published annually between 1996 and 1998, 'Primer' acted as an introductory text to a wide range of themes. Produced in a unique poster/pamphlet format 'Primer' could be kept as a poster or trimmed to pamphlet size using pre-printed crop-marks and bound with brass binding-screws provided.
Issue 02, edited by Fällt contributing editor Christophe Behrens, 'Code' was published to coincide with the release of Version 5.0 of Phil Zimmermann's Pretty Good Privacy (PGP). The issue unravelled the hype and history surrounding encryption as we moved increasingly towrads a web-based society. Each issue of 'Code' included a free printed and die-cut Stegasarous cutout - the 'price' of a copy of celebrated cypherpunk Cypherella's encryption software Stego.
Romana Machado - aka Cypherella - has ploughed a singular furrow online since the earliest days of the web, notably contributing significantly to privacy issues with her Stego steganography software. Fällt are proud to partner with her and feature her work.
Published in a limited edition of 100 copies.
