Lit Mag Covers :: Picks of the Week

Published December 01, 2014 Posted by
This inaugural issue of Profane Literary Journal features "A Feeling of Freedom" by W. Jack Savage, a painting with such rich texture it makes it appear as if the cover is actually canvas.
Each time I look at this cover, I can't help but hear the song "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'." They're not boots, actually, but shoes with pant legs, and a crowd of little people as the shadow of each footstep. The piece is Karma by Do Ho Suh (2003; Urethane paint on fiberglass and resin; 153 1/2 x 118 x 291 inches) and is a fitting image for the theme of the Fall 2014 issue of The Missouri Review: Ultra-Violence.
