CoEvolution Quarterly (1974–1985) was a journal descended from Stewart Brand's Whole Earth Catalog. Stewart Brand founded the CoEvolution Quarterly in 1974 using proceeds from the Whole Earth Catalog.[1] It evolved out of the original Supplement to the Whole Earth Catalog.[2] Fred Turner notes that in 1985, Brand merged CoEvolution Quarterly with The Whole Earth Software Review (a supplement to The Whole Earth Software Catalog) to create the Whole Earth Review.[3]

CoEvolution Quarterly became the first place to publish Ivan Illich's Vernacular Values.[4]
