"Hiroshima, Mon Amour" by Augusto de Campos
From January 1962 through July 1969, El Corno Emplumado / The Plumed Horn was on the cutting edge of independent publishing. Margaret Randall and Sergio Mondragon were its founders and co-editors. The bilingual quarterly, which ran from 100 to almost 300 pages per issue, published some of the best new work to come out of Latin and North America — with occasional sections from Canada, Finland, France, and other countries. Its 3,000 copies had a worldwide distribution. Because it took a stand in defense of Mexico’s 1968 Student Movement, it was forced to shut down in 1969. It had published 31 issues and a dozen books.
This case features multiple editions of the publication El Corno Emplumado / The Plumed Horn.
“El corno emplumado is a magazine of poetry, prose, letters and art from two hemispheres; a magazine whose pages conformed to the word instead of whose words conformed to the pages.”
-Margaret Randall, video interview with Anne Mette W. Nielsen from 2002
