On the Dial | Fine Print Mag



Fine Print Mag | Radio Waves

Fine Print is an independent literary and visual arts magazine. They were just put on my radar when we received some of their issues via analog mail. This little mag carries a beautiful punk aesthetic, with black & white hand-drawn artwork from various featured artists. Fine Print is a seasonal publication that keeps it simple, but packs a punch.

I read through the Spring 2016 Issue which opened with an excerpt from "Field Notes From Dimension X" by Carson Mell. I wrote about Carson Mell on the blog not too long ago with an excerpt from his wild-ride-of-a-book, Saguaro (which I loved). The featured artist in the issue is Morgan Anderson. Anderson's work is "largely inspired by nature and mankind's interaction with it." My favorite piece in the issue is "White Blood Cells" by Jasmine Dream Wagner. It's told in eight stanzas and follows a road trip from the Grand Canyon to North Carolina. The opening stanza reads:

"I wake in the dark at the lip of the canyon. When light breaks on the desert pines, I rise and take one last stroll down the incline. That's when I see the ram. He looks at me with a walnut eye. He lowers his head to show me his horns. They are heavier than all of his bones."

All in all, it's inspiring to see people publishing art in the DIY spirit. Fine Print is a quality mag that's easy to dive into. Check 'em out, and if you're an artist, they accept submissions via email at submissions@fineprintpaper.com.
