Afterall – Issue 28
Our sixth issue which tackles one of the dangerous themes in poetry. Expect to find poems about the weight of meaning behind the term ‘wife’, love as an elderly lesbian, motherhood and the hopeless powerlessness of love after death. Featuring work from some of the finest contemporary poets and illustrators working today, plus interviews with Joe Dunthorne, Salena Godden and Tom Chivers.
Each issue has around 168 pages and includes high-quality colour reproductions of the artists’ work. Issue 26 looks at questions of pedagogy, such as gallery education, Godard’s didacticism, Lina Bo Bardi’s exhibition displays, and through the artists Catherine Sullivan, Isidoro Valcárcel Medina and Group Material. Accompanying texts look at Hans Eijkelboom, theorisations of the event and the current Moscow art scene.

Jake Blanchard’s third volume of Menagerie finally shows up just over a year after #2… The concept this time is slightly different, not only do the artists create imagery based on the musicians music, but this time the musicians also create a track based on an image created by the artist. Two exclusive new tracks from each of these artists: Ben Nash, Isengrind, C Joynes and Twinsistermoon. And exclusive new artwork by Jim Stoten, Simon Fowler, Adrianne Neil and Jake Blanchard. The sleeve is a collaboration between Jake and Jim and it is incredible! The LP is pressed on heavyweight black virgin vinyl, packaged with a A5 12 page litho printed full colour booklet. Limited to 500 copies.
