|What books have 4AD published?|
Apart from the This Rimy River and v23
catalogues, 4AD published one monograph of Tom Baril's work in
September 1997. Tom Baril began working as Robert Mapplethorpe's
printer, but also took photographs himself. As with This Rimy
River, there's a super-limited-edition version for those
with more money than sense. A print of the photograph below can be
purchased for $2000. Very Robert Mapplethorpe, no?
|What has been written about 4AD and v23?|
Here's a very good list of articles which was provided by
A special issue of emigre magazine (issue number nine) which is now very expensive and rare. There's a good bibliography at the end of the v23 Exhibition/Exposition catalogue of articles about Vaughan Oliver, v23 and 23 Envelope.
There is a small selection of articles on Shinro Ohtake, including a features article from eye mag 1993 for Tokyo Salamnder by Shinro Ohtake and Vaughan Oliver at the artbooks site.

|Are there any 4AD-esque magazines?|
Several, although none of them cover exclusively 4AD music. Brant
Nelson, a 4AD-L subscriber, is responsible for co-editing
Dewdrops, which is as near to a 4AD fanzine as one might get. The
contact address is:
Dewdrops also releases records, including a 4AD tribute compilation thurtene, several singles and a compilation splashed with many a speck. Please see their website for more information.
Ray Gun - A professional-quality magazine with really
odd, experimental (some say unreadable) layout. Covers a wide variety
of "alternative" music. The November 93 "UK" issue #11 was amazing,
with coverage of just about every English thislisty band you can think
of. Also, in issue number 5 (April '93), they did a story on 4AD
and v23. They story itself is about two pages' worth of text
spread over five pages of art, and very informative. Their address is:
Subscription rate: about $25 a year (10 issues)
Immerse published about three issues before,
apparently, folding. You might be able to find some copies or
order one of the back issues:
UK: £ 3.25 (inc. p&p)UK Address:
On 26 Jul 1997 David Thorpe wrote: "I've now had two issues of a probably-hard-to-find magazine called "immerse" which has a variety of interesting and well written articles, photographs and lots of small book, film and music reviews. It's close to The Wire in design, but with bigger pictures and bylines and smaller amounts of text. And you won't find a serif font between the sheets."
John Roseborough also mentions that it can be ordered from Dave at Playing by Ear. His email address is pbe@Rt66.com
Space Age Bachelor is a fanzine / magazine written
almost exclusively by Donald Anderson. Published quarterly and
distributed widely through Tower Records (amongst others), it
contains articles, interviews and reviews in a fairly mixed-up
style. An issue costs about $4 or £3. It's been going about
three years. Here's what's in some issues:

Obviously, a whole range of other fanzines and magazines I have
sketchy information on, such as The Wire, Alternative
Press, Option, New Musical Express, blah blah blah.
