From January, 1962 through July, 1969, El Corno Emplumado / The Plumed Horn was on the cutting edge of independent publishing. The bilingual quarterly, which ran from 100 to almost 300 pages per issue, published some of the best new work to come out of Latin and North America—with occasional sections from Canada, Finland, France, and other countries. Its 3,000 copies were distributed worldwide. The journal was founded and co-edited by Margaret Randall and Sergio Mondragon. In its last year Robert Cohen replaced Mondragon on the masthead. Because it took a stand in defense of Mexico’s 1968 Student Movement, in mid-1969 the journal was forced to close. It had published 31 issues and a dozen books.
