Rare Five Journal collectible item. "Rebirth 2002/Cultural Landscape" landmark issue. A brilliant production by Joe Magee: Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. The cover features original art by Tina Lomas called "Rebirth", which shows a baby sculpture emerging from a thicket. The baby sculpture is reproduced in full in a horizontal doublespread image within the journal. Contributions by a diverse group of writers, artists, performers, musicians, composers, filmmakers, photographers, and designers, including Tina Lomas, Susan Sontag, Martin Parr, John leCarre, John Boorman, Don McCullin, Richard Long, Bonnie Greer, Blake Morrison, Gavin Bryars, Richard Billingham, John Maeda, and Peter Saville, among many others, a glittering and dizzyingly eclectic Who's Who of contemporary literary, philosophical, musical, cinematic, architectural, photographic, and art scenes. Stunning 10 X 15 inch poster, "Garden of Eden", by Joe Magee folded and laid-in. The poster has the words, "Do Not Touch" (this paradise poster, presumably) printed on recto. Without DJ, as issued. Presents some of the concerns, projects, and ideas by some of the world's finest living artists, many of them firmly established and many others, especially the immensely talented Tina Lomas and Joe Magee, on the verge of the fame they richly deserve. The idea of a magazine/journal that appeals to an audience knowledgeable about and keenly interested in philosophy, literature, and the arts is almost naively idealistic in our Age of Over-Specialization. But here it is, in all its splendor, beauty, and glory, for real and for keeps. The best contemporary journal of its kind, this is a "must-have" title for contemporary art and literature collectors. This copy is Number 509, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in black fountain pen underneath her baby sculpture, "Rebirth", by Tina Lomas. This title is now collectible. This is one of only two copies still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Some of the world's finest living artists, writers, and thinkers. A flawless copy. . ISBN 0014776774. $70.00
