Issue 01 : Illustration (Spring 2018)
Irish women reconcile with a culture historically oppressive to the female spirit and conjure ideas that are intimate and interrogative. Informed by the past, these Irish female emerging Illustrators draw a map of the future.
Issue 02 : The Living Mountain (Autumn 2018)
The original book describes the author, Nan Shepard’s, relationship with environment. In a highly descriptive and intimate way, her journey through natural surroundings is accompanied with anecdotes about her personal life. Inspired by this, Issue 02 is a collection of essays, interviews, reviews and other texts about the work of several emerging Female Artists who are exploring landscape, environment, physical space or psychic space in their work.
Issue 03 : Shape Histories (Spring 2019)
Shape Histories’ is a collection of speculative fiction written in response to work by four artists Deirdre Breen, Robyn Carey, Gráinne Nagle and Sophia Vigne. Their work is abstract, geometric and bold. The writers re-write the history of a shape they each observe in a given body of work.
