Author: Communicating Vessels
CV #21 – LBC
This surrealist-inspired anti-state communist journal gets better and better, as the producer gains skill and confidence in his press technique. Someone once described him as an old man, and while chronologically that is not correct, it does accurately describe the appeal to old fashioned values that he describes, eschewing email and telephone for a slower pace.
This issue includes the enviable letters section (necessarily more robust, since it is the only way to communicate with the publication), a tribute to recently deceased surrealist Franklin Rosemont, the excellent Bestiary by Kenneth Rexroth, the beginning of a series of pieces on surrealism in the Arab world (Egypt, for this issue), reviews of books including Kent Winslow’s Landmarks in the Desert and Bock’s The Principle of Hope, among other things.
