Janus Faces arrives

Well if you read the headlines right folks you’d be well aware by now that our hard-won second issue, Janus Faces, is currently being pressed and printed and bound and boxed and shipped, and is expected to hit the shops in March.

Janus Faces is a real gem. 22 contributing geniuses – journalists, fiction writers, poets, painters, photographers, designers, craftspeople, academics, theatre makers, scientists, editors, mothers, fathers – have joined to create an incredible issue.

JF also comes with a DVD of Willoh S. Weiland’s ‘Yelling At Stars’ performance from Next Wave Festival 2008 – the first release of the astounding artwork since that cold May night last decade.
