issue #22 - re /visit /cycle /turn
about this issue
the concept for issue 22 of blueprintreview seemed simple: for once, only pre-published pieces. and the official theme, derived from the pre-published approach: 're /visit /cycle /turn'.
memoirs, i expected. abroad and home reflections. stories of recycled goods.
the first submissions pointed at a slightly larger take, leading from "Antibodies" to "dying for answers" and to the quizzical question: "How to Describe Eternity".
the following submissions, almost in answer, delivered an Insight, Fragments, and - The Birth of the Universe.
the reflections and abroad clues arrived, too, yet in a way i hadn't foreseen: a mail conversation about shut-down e-magazines induced a tour through archives, and brought lost magazines back to the web. and the longlist of marked submissions brought the idea to put a page with memorable further reads together, something that usually isn't possible.
another highlight of this issue: the artwork. some of the image titles almost form a poem -
Blue Radiant / Corridors
a new day / untitled
sequestered / rezonation
Dusk / A Wing We Saw
- and the images themselves are beyond words.
cover itself follows the theme, too, and is a recycled detail of the bpr #1 cover.
to sum it up: if this issue had a subtitle, it probably would be: "re/view re/joice re/collect".

the 4 concepts of this e-zine
1) texts and images are from unrelated places
2) there is no given theme - each issue develops its own theme through submissions
3) there is no deadline or timetable - an issue goes online when it feels complete
4) all rules can be broken
