Issue #27, Winter 2005
Art Director: Andrea Feldman
Photographer: Jeffery Walls
Astroturf, black foamcore, and a couple of studio lights made the little house on the cover of this issue an emblem of the anomie and conflict engendered by the concept of "home." As we wrote in this issue's Editors' Letter, "The idea of home as the place where we are most ourselves looms large in the American imagination, and its psychic potential to transform us is as powerful as our literal imperative to transform it." Fittingly, the blank canvas of a building (created for us by architect pal Hugh Hynes), while transformed by a collage of photos, maps, and found letters and fabric, retains an eerie sense of longing.
Our 15th-anniversary series prints offer something for every taste. Featuring some of our favorite covers from Bitch's 15-year history, the limited-edition prints offer gorgeous photos, cool illustrations, nifty typography, and lots of color to perk up your living space. All 15 designs are archival giclee* prints on high-quality, heavy watercolor paper, and are suitable for framing. And if you just can't decide, maybe you need more than one — after all, they'll look pretty great hanging side by side.
*A very high-quality, archival inkjet print that creates very fine detail and vivid color, used by artists to reproduce work with a high degree of integrity to the original.
