New Poster Giveaway by Lydia Moyer

Artist, Lydia Moyer has created a new poster, as a follow up to her much talked about: "Make America an Endless Expanse of Old Growth Forest with no Certain Borders Again," (which have all been dispersed).  This new one, also newsprint, is two-sided with the words 'Melt Your Guns' on one side and 'Melt Your Sons' on the other.  We are lucky to be giving them away with orders while supplies last.

Here is what Lydia had to say about this one:

" I live in Charlottesville where this year, on the anniversary of the Unite The Right rally which brought hundreds of gun-wielding young male white supremacists to town in 2017, there were checkpoints around the city where the police could take your knives and bats and paintball guns and water guns and pellet guns away but not your AK47 because open carry is legal in Virginia."

Note from the artist: If you don't want to hang them up, "they are also excellent fire-starters : )"

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.
