The Electronic Archive “Project for the Study of Dissidence and Samizdat” (PSDS) includes the database of Soviet samizdat periodicals, electronic editions of selected samizdat journals, illustrated timelines of dissident movements, and interviews with activists. The Project aims to make rare materials more widely available and to provoke questions about the trajectories of groups and individuals within the varied field of Soviet dissidence and nonconformist culture.
ЖУРНАЛ МОД (FASHION JOURNAL), appears to be one of the many journal projects undertaken by Sergei Sigei (Sigov) and Ry Nikonova (Tarshis), later involved with the samizdat journal ТРАНСПОНАНС (TRANSPONANS). This issue appears to have been compiled over the course of a couple of years. The couple moved to Leningrad in 1974, and it appears that around that time they ceased working on this journal.
The copy of No. 1 (1972-1974) comes from the Sigov/Tarshis Collection (F. 97) at the Research Centre for East European Studies at Bremen University.
