AMBIT is a quarterly of poems, short stories, drawings, & criticism/contents. This issue is a special Art Number, with generous publication of intimate catalogues from the special projects, works-in-progress, and cross-genre collections commissioned from artists working in a variety of media. Woven into and between poetry, interviews, and reviews, this issue happens upon these rich and delicate reproductions as well as a rare treasure or two, from leggy drawings that interpret sculpture by Laura Preece to a multimedia spread of work from artist David Hockney.
