Dog-Ear Bookmark Magazine, Issue 09- FREE

We received the newest issue of Dog-Ear, a "community interest" bookmark magazine published in the UK.  We are lucky to be able to give this issue for free with web orders and purchases at Lump Gallery.  The bookmark includes poetry, illustration & even a crossword puzzle.  Contributors include Olivia Spidel, Charlie Methven, John Ros, Neil Laurenson, Mansour Chow, Vicki Johnson, Rebecca Field, Nathan Fidler & cover art by Tomoko Tsukiuda.  In this issue, they even give The Concern Newsstand a shoutout as one of their few state-side stockists.  Dog-Ear relies on donations, as in this issue from people like author Margaret Atwood (!).

"It’s a bookmark. It’s a magazine. It’s open to everyone.  It believes in the benefits of playful creativity, especially reading, writing and drawing.  You’ll find it lurking in libraries and bookshops, or nestled between pages of other magazines.  Submissions are collected and posted online. Every three months-ish, we pick our top nine and print an issue."

Make America... newsprint poster by Lydia Moyer & Tero Juuti

While supplies last, we are giving away this special, limited run- newsprint poster with every purchase made online or at our Lump Gallery location in Raleigh.  It was the idea of Charlottesville, VA- based artist Lydia Moyer as a spin off of what she sees America should be, mocking Trump's 'Make America Great Again' slogan:  "Make America An Endless Expanse of Old-Growth Forest With No Certain Borders Again."  Moyer enlisted the help of Finnish designer Tero Juuti to recreate the MAGA hat typography -look into this newsprint poster.  The result is, as someone pointed out to Moyer after the fact: "some irony in the whole project since newsprint is tied to deforestation."  22.75" x 27.5"
