Primary Information is a non-profit organization devoted to printing artists books, artist writings, out of print publications and editions. Primary Information was formed in 2006 by Miriam Katzeff and James Hoff to foster intergenerational dialogue through the publication of artists’ books and writings by artists—emerging, mid-career, and established. Our period of focus is from the early Sixties to the present, with an emphasis on the conceptual practice begun in the mid Sixties and the strategy of using publications as an extension of this practice.

Our program involves three distinct components: (1) the publication of lost or unpublished material still vital to contemporary discussions, (2) the publication of books by contemporary artists, and (3) the publication of editions that function as publications, though may take the shape of say a record or poster (in this way, we are very much influenced by how Printed Matter has come to define the artist book and its varied forms since the 1960s). Our aim is to reach audiences throughout the world, those to whom publications can reach but galleries and museums cannot.

Primary Information receives generous support through grants from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts, the Stichting Egress Foundation, the Buddy Taub Foundation, and individuals worldwide.

Primary Information is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. For information about donations, please email info(at)primaryinformation.org

Shown here is the sharply-critical account of the cruelties of the conquistadors by the Franciscan missionary Bartolomé de Las Casas (1474-1566), which in 1542 led to changes in Spanish administrative policies in New Spain.

Sheet 8A: This sheet concerns the movement of projectiles through air and water. Leonardo counters the "adversary," who claims the motion is caused by the vacuum behind the bullet. Leonardo explores the changing velocity of falling water, which is linked to his interest in the problem of the body of the earth. 8r SYNOPSIS: Leonardo here works with the principles of impetus and percussion. This page begins with a version of the axiom that water flows downhill. A passage accompanying the drawing of the seesaw discusses the effect of two men balanced on it. When one attempts to jump, they find that it requires cooperation?a stoop and jump by the first man must be coordinated with a push by the second. This study of changing equilibrium and balance introduces a more difficult problem: How does water act when it falls (as in a waterfall)?the logical endpoint of w --- Image by © Seth Joel/CORBIS



Moray is a town in Peru approximately 50 km Northwest of Cuzco near the town of Maras that is noted for a large complex of unusual Inca ruins. These include most notably several enormous terraced circular depressions that were perhaps used to study the effects of different climatic conditions on crops. The depth of the pits (the largest is about 30 m deep) creates a temperature gradient of as much as 15° C between the top and the bottom. As with many other Inca sites, it also has a very sophisticated irrigation system for providing the plants with water. (From Wikipedia)

THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution.

RESOLVED by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America, in Congress assembled, two thirds of both Houses concurring, that the following Articles be proposed to the Legislatures of the several States, as amendments to the Constitution of the United States, all, or any of which Articles, when ratified by three fourths of the said Legislatures, to be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of the said Constitution; viz.
