The third issue of Zero, a more substantial book-sizec volume, was characterized by a new kind typographycal experimentation, unaugurating a shift in the approach to the magazine page, from secondary document to primary site of artistic activity. It chronicled Jean Tinguely's “Homage to New York” and included a reprint of the front page of Klein's self-published “Dimanche”, reproducing his “Leap into the Void" (1960). It also contained several pages of photographs arranged in a grid that juxtaposed works by the Zero group alongside images of a water tower, night sky, sand dunes, and others phenomena, suggesting a realm in which works of art might interact with natural and technological forms. Most innovative of all were several contributions that explored the spatiotemporal form to the magazine itself: klein published one article that ends mid sentence where the page is burnt, and another that ceased with the page being torn; Tinguely pasted an actual sun flower send to the page, encouraging the reader to plant it soil; and Daniel Spoerri attached a book of matches to the page, accompanied by “pyromaniac instructions” to burn the entire magazine. Zero 3 also contained a series of pages that count down from 10 to 1, ending with the word “zero” pictured as a rocket blasting off. According to Piene, the magazine ended because “its mission had been fulfilled”. [Gwen Allen, Artists' magazine, Cambridge - London, The MIT Press, 2011, pay. 312 con illustrazione]
