Abridged Commentary (Part 0 – 10)

This was our tenth anniversary issue. And we really went for it. This was part of two exhibitions featuring massive video installations with scenes of apocalyptic Earth and even a ruined and desolate Mars. The artist was Kelly Richardson, one of our favourite people and someone who shares many aspects of our vision. We’re pretty confident that very few poetry magazines matched us in the scope of our anniversary project. 

The magazine itself, we were very pleased with. We created our first ‘jigsaw’ covers splitting an image which could be only seen in full by putting three issues and two issues together simultaneously. We’d come a long way in ten years. We still had a long way to go.
