Lit Mag Covers :: Picks of the Week

Published January 16, 2017 Posted by
zone threeThis week's theme for covers seems to be 'the fantastical from the literal.' Philippe Pirrip's "Curved Plan" is featured on the cover of Zone 3 Fall 2016. Pripp describes his artistic approach as "a visual play of identities" and "a resistance to conform to literal figurations of what is and what has been depicted as being queer."
southampton reviewOf the cover of Winter/Spring 2017 The Southampton Revi Editor-in-Chief Lou Ann Walker comments: "Because this issue's theme is the muse, all of the art in this issue was chosen for its emphasis on story and the fantastical places imagination can go. Take, for example, the cover, 'Stopping by Woods,' created by Corinne Geertsen. How did that ballerina in her tutu come to be juxtaposed with that extraterrestrial spaceship?" Indeed.
chattahoochee reviewThe Chattahoochee Review Fall2016/Winter2017 cover art "War Bonnets: Never Out of Style for Long" by Lucy Julia Hale is representative of her artistic approach, which she describes: "I am drawn to see deeply into paper artifacts / mass-produced photographic images of our interiors and exteriors - / where we have lived."
