Sampler: Esopus #24
Esopus is an enormous slab of arts publishing, created by the non-profit Esopus Foundation in New York. Take a flick through its 228 pages and you’ll find an array of photography, illustration and essays, plus all sorts of artist-made inserts waiting to be discovered along the way. This is an exceptional print plaything, and the words and pictures on the page are just the beginning.
We’re excited to have their 24th issue on Sampler, which gives you free shipping to the US, UK and Europe, and 10% off the cover price.
In this issue:
— Archival material by MoMA New York from its 1940 Italian Masters exhibition
— Portraits by Clayton Patterson of drag performers at New York City’s Pyramid Club in the mid-1980s
— An interview with translator Ann Goldstein, followed by three reproduced drafts from her translations
— MELT D|D OWN is activated through an audio accompaniment, as you create your own artwork
— Never-before-seen photographs from legendary photographer Arthur Tress, along with an interview with him
— And artist Marco Maggi has made a sheet of self-adhesive, die-cut forms for you to create with
With free shipping to the UK, Europe and USA, and subsidised everywhere else, this is an excellent opportunity to have a massive arts magazine delivered to your door. But we have limited copies available, so make sure you don’t miss out.
