wow the issue looks great! very strong indeed. i'm proud to be a part of it.
i saw what you did with the old ezines and the link to xeroxed, amazing! i just wish there was an archive of all those 80s and 90s lit mags.

wonderful. just wonderful. beautiful issue!
and i can't tell you how much fun it is, looking through the pages and seeing all of the interconnections - the idea of BPR and its mandate to join texts and images from unrelated places - well, this reprints issue with links to the originals, does double, triple, even quadruple duty to the intent:
texts and images from unrelated points of origin - or originating contexts - and texts and images from unrelated publications, and in the original publications, many of the images and texts are paired with texts and images, also from unrelated places - another layer yet again.
so many combinations and permutations.
congratulations once again!

Here I did a bit of blogging on it.
I like the rhizomatic sprouting of side pages that relate to the issue.

It will give my coffee some needed spike. I'm glad to be part of this issue. Thank you.

The new issue of BluePrint Review is now online! This issue, #22, is themed re / visit / cycle/ turn and features all reprints, which I think is a fantastic idea. Check out the poems by Lynne Shapiro , Michael K. White , and myself! The editor's notes on how the idea for a reprint issue came about are especially interesting.

(blog note on "Keepsake")
"Keepsake" was originally published in The Sidewalk's End in February of 2001. That e-zine unfortunately closed a while later. When I saw Blue Print Review 's theme issue submission guidelines, I instantly thought "Keepsake" would be a good fit -
I think the story gained an accidental further significance later in 2001 with the 9-11 attacks. When I look at a certain passage about firemen, and the overall theme of hope vs. fear, I see how a larger public may soon have come to share some of the views of the narrator in "Keepsake". (more)

Issue #22 is fabulous. Excellent art, excellent writing. Fun extras. Brilliant.
(blog note on "Fragments" and Cha "Lost Teas")
My poem, “ Fragments “, first published in Lily in 2007, is now reprinted in the “re /visit /cycle /turn” issue of BluePrintReview. ... When the poem was first published, it appeared with a photograph I took in Krakow, Poland (I was visiting my friend Jakub). Now, with a new home comes a new photograph by John Metcalf. A chaos of colours reminiscent of the patterns of brain cells when triggered by remembering.
Remember to read the story behind the “re /visit /cycle /turn” issue . Cha 's brand-new “Lost Teas” section is partly inspired by BluePrintReview editor Dorothee Lang's decision to have an entire issue devoted to reprints. (more)

This issue of bpr shows your excitement about internet resurrection resuscitation revival republishing. Sounds like you should consider channeling your work into a spin-off, something bi-annual.
Maybe call it i-revublish.
