Issue No. 4, "PINK/PUNK"
full color, 216pp, 10 x 8"
Distinguished only by a single phoneme, PINK/PUNK represent both the hopeful imaginary and the viscerally real. PUNK and PINK are about the ways in which we build up our beauty and our rage, perhaps only to destroy them. They are both about ambiguity, paradox, and otherness—and the simultaneity of fragility and strength.
The new double issue features responses to the theme(s) in photography, poetry, non-fiction, visual art, interviews and fiction by: Jay Besemer, Mary Walling Blackburn, C:\VEhF\, Laura A.
