Bob Dobbs | The DEW LINE


Bob Dobbs reads from Marshall McLuhan’s The DEW-LINE newsletter, published from 1968-1970 by Eugene M. Schwartz in New York.

“I don’t pretend to understand it. After all, my stuff is very difficult.”
Marshall McLuhan remarking on his work

The title is a reference to Canada’s ‘Distant Early Warning’ communications system of the Cold War years. The newsletter was available to subscribers only and was published in various formats, including papers clipped in folders, a tabloid newspaper, and printed booklets, often accompanied by 'posters, vinyl recordings, and slides of advertisements.

Adobe file is really good. I like the handwritten images, screen shots and fancy typesetting. Well done everybody.
