The International Society of Copier Artists (I.S.C.A) was a non-profit group founded by "Louise Neaderland in 1981, intended to promote the work of copier artists and to advocate for the recognition of copier art as a legitimate form.[1] The group is best known for producing The I.S.C.A Quarterly as well as for coordinating exhibitions of "xerographic artwork, and the distribution of "The I.S.C.A Newsletter".[2] Women made up the majority of society's membership.[3]

The I.S.C.A Quarterly[edit]

The I.S.C.A. Quarterly was published from 1982-2003.[4] Typically, issues were produced in limited editions of 200 copies, with an average of 45 pages of original copier art supplied by I.S.C.A. members.[5] Over the years the form of the Quarterly mutated from a collection of unbound pages to a spiral bound journal with an Annual Bookworks Edition composed of a box of books made by I.S.C.A. members.[6] The work produced for the Quarterly ranged widely in focus from social and political issues to personal and emotional themes. The final issue (Volume 21, #4) was published in June 2003. [7][8]
