The Open Source Digest publishes freely available, out of copyright material from the public domain. Compiled into an easily replicated, adaptable, low budget format, it focusses not only on the immediate formal concerns, but also on an appropriate overall treatment of the content. It serves as an example of one of many ways of processing a digital resource into an accessible physical artifact.
The Open Source Digest aims to highlight publishing values, question current production models and explore copyright issues, by employing print publishing as a tool for active critical inquiry.
The Open Source Digest is a non-profit publication and is sold for the cost of its production and distribution.
