Art magazines in Cape Town or by mail order

"Deep South Distribution (DSD) specialises in material not stocked by, difficult or impossible to locate in South African book shops. We offer obscure and mainstream material, at very good prices. Art magazines stocked include Art in America, Artforum, World Art and Third Text. DSD offers its services by mail order throughout South Africa. Our official Cape Town outlet is at 99 Loop Street. I used to offer an annual printed catalogue, with monthly updates. Sadly, these have become too expensive to produce. I now prefer to e-mail my lists. Please support our drive to carry the latest issues of some of the world's leading magazines and journals, by purchasing, and/or spreading the word." - Paul Wessels.

DSD can be contacted at tel/fax: (021) 24-0775 or preferably by e-mail at
