This chapter describes the role of photography and film in the little magazine transition and in the Revolution of the Word announced in it. It focuses particularly on the Readie project of Bob Brown, which was intended to produce a machine for reading poems and stories from strips of film. The utopian hopes of both the magazine and the Readie project are mocked by the appearance in many of the Readies of prejudicial, even racist material.

Keywords:   Readie project, Bob Brown, transition, photography, film, racism
