The Other Side Magazine

The Other Side began in 1965 as Freedom Now addressing issues of racial injustice. The nonprofit closed in 2004. I was fortunate enough to work there from 1991- 1995 and then from 1999 to the end.

We made some beautiful issues with content too valuable to be lost on zip drives in my basement.

Posted below are PDFs of some of the issues for which I created the layout and selected the art. The authors and artists retain the copyright to their work which appeared on these pages. If you're an artist or author and object to your work being displayed in this context, let me know and I'll take it down right away.

These PDFs are from the original QuarkXpress files. Some of the fonts in the ads are gone, some ads were to be stripped in by the printer, and several of the large pieces of art are extremely low-resolution, so the issues posted here are not 100% true to the final product. (The printer used to keep the high-res files and swap out the low-res versions I used for layout-- that was before the days of having enough computer power to do it ourselves! Can you imagine?!)

All that's really left is a Facebook group,
"Friends of 300 W. Apsley."
