Top Stories, a prose periodical was a chapbook series created by Anne Turyn in the late 1970s. A student of linguistics, Turyn conceived of it as a literary series but welcomed the combination of text and image—a trademark of her own photographic practice. Each issue focused on a single artist, mostly women, some of whom Turyn met through readings and performances—such as Kathy Acker, Laurie Anderson, Constance DeJong, and Pati Hill—and embraced the permeable creativity of the time in blending literary works with art and music. Top Stories and other work are encapsulated in the small, two-toned-cloth softcover book that accompanied Turyn’s exhibition at Weiss Berlin earlier this year. The unassuming format, halftone imagery, and raw typesetting all complement the improvised feeling of the chapbooks.
