Spanner NYC magazine was the creation of photographer Teri Slotkin and sculptor Dick Miller.  It was published partially with funds from the artist group Collaborative Projects, Inc (Colab).  Contributing artists come from the Colab circle and the broader downtown art community.  Each of the artists was solely responsible for their own pages.    In addition to these three issues done in a traditional magazine format there is also a highly unusual special fourth issue of Spanner in which artists created rubber stamps that were than applied to a paper jumpsuit.  Gallery 98 offers the Spanner Jumpsuit as a separate listing.
