about issue two²
"or to make it simple: make it 2. that was the key line of the call for issue 25. curious, i waited for texts and images of the 2 kind. and received: two-way poems. stories inside stories. 2-layer photos. poems in 2 parts. second-hand clips of life. and so much more twosome goodness.
the first threesome of twos is on now, kicking in with The Scream, Fire on the Other Side, Pre-Cell Observations in 2 Parts and with a spin of complementary colors.
here is the door to two²: blueprintreview issue 25
this issue goes live in sequences again, check out the blog for a (color)full contributor roundabout with 2 links per person, and for some figured clues to editing blueprintreview: blueprint blog

reflections, links, backstory, quotes etc.
the idea for the "two²" issue
popped up while working on the previous micro cosmos
issue, here a quote from a blog note:
next issue: two²
as it turned out, the micro cosmos issue developedd a second, unplanned underlying thematic layerr: figures+numbers. there were stories composed out of 3 sub-stories, and out of 5 sub-stories. there was a story tryptich. a 3-way mirror. a four radius.
following up on this structural theme, the next issue of blueprintreview will have the theme "two²" - with 2 being the concept both in a formal, and in a thematic way.
(more details on this, in the micro cosmos note I , second thought: "three, and 2, 4, 5, 6". the quote is from micro cosmos note II )

the 4 concepts of this e-zine
1) texts and images are from unrelated places
2) themes for future issues develop through the work on the current issue.
3) there is no deadline or timetable - an issue goes online when it feels complete
4) all rules can be broken
