Foursquare 3.1

Foursquare 3.1, which is technically the June 2008 issue (like any respectable journal I am at least six months behind schedule), is an homage to Virginia Woolf’s book Mrs. Dalloway, which like James Joyce’s Ulysses (treated in 2.1) takes place on a single June day. Featuring poetry by Michelle Naka Pierce & Sue Hammond West, Ana Božičević-Bowling, Diana Hamilton and Jessea Perry with cover art by Judy Chicago.

P.S. This might be my favorite sleeve fabric ever, except for the couple of issues (1.3, 1.4, and Michelle Detorie’s SE) that were hand-silkscreened.

    ummm, WOW, how did you get Judy Chicago!!! That is amazing and wonderous and says a lot for small press journals, collaboration and support! I love yr new avie! xoxo

  2. Well Susana, don’t get too excited– it’s not original work. I just got her permission to reproduce a photograph of an older piece. While getting this permission I never actually talked to her, just to her assistant. But it is still cool… she’ll get contributors copies and stuff, so I think it’s cool that she’ll have copies of 4SQ. She’s a very appropriate person to be in 4SQ, except for the goal of publishing more “minor” poets/artists. (Basically I saw the piece and thought, “that’s perfect for this issue!” and instead of looking harder for an unknown artist, emailed her.)
