This issue of our favorite photo journal organizes under the banner of the “Slow Read.” And within there are shooting ranges, Mars simulations, fruit harvests, kids in the back of a truck going nowhere. As poet Hajara Quinn writes in her foreword, "A suite of photographs has the quality of a poem with many possible permutations...stirring up the space between the subconscious and conscious worlds."

"In times of containment, photography moves where people cannot," writes Tasha Bjelić in their introduction to the new issue of Incandescent. "It provides a platform for civic engagement. These photographs appear as survivors of a neoliberal history. The people, metaphors, details, and emotions amalgamate as acts of vulnerability and resistance."

The companion book to her Antiquated Future Records release Traveler's Ode

165 pages, large trade paperback.

This volume collects LB's writing from her first five years as a public school teacher. It is at turns powerful, hilarious, sad, inspirational, and always always always amazing. If any zine deserves a 400+ page anthology, it's Truckface.

"Through strikes, standardized testing, violence, bouffant wigs, school closings, and drawings of wieners, Truckface documents the life of one Chicago public school teacher. Simultaneously hopeful and hopeless, this volume contains Issues 12-16."

448 pages, compact trade paperback. ISBN # 9780991235407. Volume One also available.

Juggalo Country is the first book to deeply examine the world of the Juggalos—the clown-painted subculture that over the past 20 years has swept across North America and grown large enough to be designated a gang by the FBI.

In the tradition of writers like Hunter S. Thompson and Jon Ronson, Craven Rock spends a debaucherous week as an undercover journalist at The Gathering of the Juggalos, the group's yearly summer festival. He reports back with hazy recollections, questionable memories, and awkward interviews. All while offering a powerful examination of the class issues, faith, violence, and internal marketing within the culture, and exploring what it says about American culture as a whole. A fascinating meditation on counterculture and community.

224 pages, trade paperback. ISBN #9781621063186. Illustrations by Damon Thompson.
