SHOWPAGE downloads

Showpage (#ShowpageZine) is a series of generative zines programmed in Adobe Postscript.  They are posted here for you to download and print.

Each time you run the .PS file, a new version of the zine is created for you.

Generative Zine downloads

Each download contains:

• a Postscript (.PS) file for processing your own custom copy of the generative zine
• instructions on how to process the .PS file
• instructions for folding & binding your zine
• and a printable sample .PDF (for those still unable to process the .PS file)

Volume 2: pRe-dacted (18 April 2019) – why wait for the Mueller Report to see all those lovely black redaction marks?

Volume 1: Hyperbole Hyperbole Parabola (30 March 2019) – an exploration into Indefinite Hyperbolic Numerals and Conic Sections


Printing / Viewing Instructions

If you have Adobe Acrobat Professional (Acrobat DC):

  • Open Acrobat Professional. From the File Menu, open the postscript (.PS) file.
  • If you’d like to keep this version, save it (File > Save). Each time you open the file, it creates a new version of the zine.
  • You can print directly from Acrobat.

If you have a Mac:

  • Double-clicking a .PS file should open directly in Apple’s Preview program.
  • If you’d like to keep this version, save it (File > Save). Each time you open the file, it creates a new version of the zine.
  • You can print directly from Preview

If you are running Windows:

Windows cannot natively open a .PS file. You will need a converter such as Rampant Logic’s Postscript Viewer (link or link) which will allow you to open .PS files in Acrobat Reader.

  • Once you have installed the viewer, double-clicking the .PS file should open it in Acrobat Reader.
  • If you’d like to keep this version, save it (File > Save). Each time you open the file, it creates a new version of the zine.
  • You can print directly from Acrobat.

Online Conversion:

While there are a number of online converters, they do not seem to offer variation each time the .PS file is uploaded. While these will allow you to create a .PDF, it will not be unique.
