The Southern Review ~ Color Me Superbly Blue!
It might just be me, but I think that this is the most gorgeous journal cover I've seen. The artist is Edward Pramuk. "Ancient Ice" comes from a series of paintings called "Voyages." I wonder if I can ask for one of his pieces now for my not-yet-written next book?
I love all of his paintings /collage that form the centerfold of this issue. Pramuk's artist statement explains that this series was born out of a dream where he saw himself on a nocturnal beach. And yes, the poetry and prose is great, too: Oliver de la Paz, Piotr Floirczyk, Peter Marcus, and Laura Kasischke, to name just a few stars. And in view of full disclosure, I have two poems in this issue, too!
