Three collages created for MIEL books special edition of their journal 1110/5
111O is our literary magazine, published twice a year (fall and spring). Each issue usually contains one photograph or print, one piece of prose, and ten poems in a slim volume with a die-cut cover.
This time, though, we decided to do something different. We asked 23 artists and photographers to lend us a piece of their work, and invited 23 writers to respond to those images. Each image, paired with its text, will be printed on a heavy postcard. (There's space on the back for an address and a stamp—so yes, you can even send them.)
We're calling this issue 1111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111. Or 111O/5, for short.
