I had the privilege of designing the fine art quarterly Carrier Pigeon Magazine 15 Vol. 4, issue 3. The first copies will arrive just in time for Art Basel and you can pre-order a copy here. Each issue is its own work of art, in a run of 1000 copies. If you love images or words, and especially if you love images AND words, you will want to see (and touch) this magazine.
Interpretations Show 3 is now available at CAL. Visual artists are paired with writers, each interprets the work of the other and the resulting creative response and identity of each are revealed at the Interpretations show in September. It's always a fun show and good work results. Ars Graphica has designed the accompanying catalog since inception.
I have the honor of working with the University of Missouri's new Kinder Institute on Constitutional Democracy, creating their marketing materials among other things. Those of you who are local are invited to attend this free event. Bring your McCullough books for signing. And please share the event!
Barnesville, Ohio, is notable for several things: their famous yearly Pumpkin Festival which draws 150,000 people to its celebration each fall, it's the hometown of Over the Rhine lead singer Karin Berquist and it will soon boast a tavern/cafe you can enjoy on your way to see the pumpkins. Ars Graphica has created the identity for Barnesville's Blue Moon Tavern. Maybe they'll invent pumpkin martinis.
And if you go via the backroads, crank up OTR's Ohio.
I met the Carrier Pigeon guys in Minneapolis at AWP a couple of months ago and was absolutely smitten by their gorgeous quarterly. I'm very excited to be working on their next issue. Stay tuned for progress updates. Give yourself a visual and literary treat—subscribe today!
This is a description from their site:
Carrier Pigeon is an artist-run magazine of illustrated fiction and fine art. Four times a year we put creative control into the hands of the contributing writers, illustrators, fine artists and designers in order to promote respectful interdisciplinary collaboration. The results are organic, collaborative, and quickly evolving compositions featured alongside full portfolios of contemporary work by fine artists from an unrestricted demographic range. We believe that loyalty to each artist’s personal vision, without regard to current trends, provides the best environment in which to collaborate on fully personal work. The main goal of this journal is to provide a magazine that is, in itself, a piece of artwork.
Web designers' sites are always the last on the list to be updated. Welcome to Ars Graphica 4.0
