Catamaran Literary Reader, iss 27 Winter 2019

Catamaran Literary Reader is a quarterly literary and visual arts journal. Catamaran captures upon the pages of their full size, full color magazine, the vibrant and creative West Coast spirit with writing and fine art from around the world. 

MAPC Journal Vol. 30/31 "New Eyes"

This issue examines translucency, scale, surface, and stencil in contemporary printmaking. "What we see affects how we see, which in turn affects how we make... Because of this, work of even the last few decades no longer sits comfortably in front of our eye’s new vision." The Mid America Print Council Journal features articles on the contemporary and historical context of printmaking and works on/of paper.
