Original decorative card covers. This is a run of the first eight issues, published at the University of Toronto from 1953 - 1957. Some modest wear to some spines, but clean and very good in general. The first issue has some annotations by the previous owner, indicating that he had contacted Mcluhan after reading his article in the first issue. Other issues have occasional underlining, ownership signatures, small annotations. An unbroken run of the first eight issues of this seminal periodical, principally edited by Edmund (?Ted?) Carpenter and Marshall McLuhan. From the introduction to the reprint done by the Toronto School Initiative: "Explorations was the first postwar journal to engage directly with the new ?grammars? of the mid-century new media of communication. Launched in Toronto in 1953, at the very moment that television made its national début in Canada, Explorations presented a mosaic of approaches to contemporary media culture and became the texts in which McLuhan and Carpenter first formulated their most striking insights about new media in the electric age."
