This is chiefly a collection of interviews with multidisciplinary artists, musicians, and writers, touching on a laudably broad range of topics from vaporwave to Liberace. The interviews are lengthy without feeling rambling or unfocused, punctuated with large illustrations and quotations from influential writers and artists of the past. The production values of this publication are definitely higher than your standard stapled-B&W-copies-on-bottom-shelf-printer-paper zine. The pages have a certain heft that can make them a bit awkward to turn and the type is very small, much easier to read in bright light, but these are minor complaints about an otherwise beautiful, thoughtful mag.
