Onomatopoeia – Its People and Surroundings


This book is a portrait of the people and culture of Onomatopoeia, capital city, port and gateway to the Island. The town was once the stepping off point for pioneers and travellers. It grew from an outpost to a bustling boomtown, before entering a phase of decline into depression ravaged slum, and now – in the fictional present – finds itself reborn as a regenerated city of culture with its own Museum of Modern Art.

Charles Avery – Drawing Room Confessions


Made of words and exchanges, with no images. Drawing Room Confessions is open to diverse practices and voices. It is named after a game played at the end of the nineteenth century in England and France, which consisted of a fixed questionnaire answered by players to reveal their tastes, aspirations and personalities. For every issue of the journal, we invite one artist to play the serious and playful game of conversation. Each section follows a set of rules, only the players change, as interviewers from a wide range of fields contribute to a portrait of the artist at a certain time.
