The Coldspring Journal is a rich and dense magazine anthology, with pages filled to the margins and layered thickly with experimental fiction, intimate poetry, and collages of photo reproductions and imagery. The publication immediately invites you in, from the softness of its pages to the intimate handwritten signatures that are printed at the end of every contributor's last page. This issue moves from outlandish, possibly imaginary interviews with figures like Dali and Count Basie to shock-value odes to masturbation and plainspoken poetry for grief, for the inexpressible loss of friends. It is a many-faced snapshot of the artist's life in 1975, made by a myriad of voices and forms of writing through it.
