Ipso Facto Magazine

Ipso Facto magazine was an electronic and “industrial” music, visual culture and arts magazine published in Gainesville, Florida and San Francisco in the mid to late ’80s. Ipso Facto was founded by JCT Cr8tv’s John C. Tripp along with Chuck Conner and Stuart Patterson. The first issue of Ipso Facto was a xeroxed and tape bound “zine”. Later issues were offset printed. Ipso Facto’s production coincided with the first Apple Macintosh and the nascent desktop publishing industry. From the start, Ipso Facto’s design and production were on a Mac and its last issues pushed the technology with four color separations.
