For Erin Goss, it’s a new chapbook-magazine called “Burleycue” that merges images with literature. Each cover is a photo-page taken from a 1931 edition of “Burleycue: The underground history of Burlesque” by Bernard Sobel.
Erin liked the play on “horticulture” & “whore” feeling that it’s applicable to both society and individuals. Artists and writers are to interpret the theme in their own way: personal, political, natural–the wider range, the better.
The inside pages are from old French & Japanese texts so it’s a 100% recycled book. It will be a small print run through All Along Press.
All proceeds benefit a charitable organization. Stay tuned for the May launch party complete with music & visual exhibit
