Paso de Peatones was an art and visual poetry magazine published under the imprint of Cocina Ediciones, an important small press in Mexico City. The magazine used the aesthetic of handmade artists’ book, using mimeography, brown wrapping paper, and direct interventions through hand-stitching and rubber stamps. Under the direction of Macotela, Pecanins and Doehner three issues of Paso de Peatones appeared between 1977 and 1980. Very rare copy. Slight age toning on cover else very good. Paso de Peatones 2 is held in the collection of University Museum of Contemporary Art and El Archivero in Mexico City, and in the artists’ book collections of MoMA and the University of California in the USA.
