Self-published from 1967—1969, 0 To 9 originally appeared in seven inexpensive, mimeographed, staple-bound issues that were sold for a dollar an issue. Although democratically conceived, the original issues ultimately were printed in small runs of between 100 and 350 copies. Very different from conventional art and poetry magazines for the period in terms of content, design and distribution, 0 To 9 consisted mostly of original, language or idea-based contributions by artists and poets, establishing a new kind of "dematerialized" do-it-yourself exhibition context beyond the existing official gallery and magazine system.
