Lexicon Polaroid #3 cover

Lexicon Polaroid #3

38 pp.
The Video Issue

Lexicon Polaroid is a literary journal that sews visual art and poetry together by the threads of personal interpretation. Pit the mutability of language against the comprehension of the reader, and end up with some creature wet with meaning, crossed between diction and depiction.

The first two issues of LP have featured poems and illustrations. This beautiful third issue is the first to feature video. Poetry featured in our third issue was interpreted as video (short films, music videos, videos of people reading, and whatever else) available for viewing online.

OK Cupid Messages I Have Not Responded To cover

OK Cupid Messages I Have Not Responded To

By Delphine Bedient

32 pps., 5.5"x4.5", saddle stitched

A collection of unanswered messages from the online dating site OK Cupid collected from one young woman's profile. Perhaps she was too busy, or turned off by run of the mill pithiness and forwardness disguised as awkwardness. Regardless, a good primer on how not to be an annoying on line dater. Funny and sweet, but surprisingly tame. I'm not sure if the author is still single.
