1 SPRING is our first issue. We were inspired, in part, by Irving Penn's book of flowers, but convincing an artist like Penn to let a fledgling publication like ours print even one of his images proved impossible. No two pages are printed on the same paper stock because we used all the printer's remnants. There are images on vellum, and artwork, like Ruben Toledo's insect story, done on plain old brown kraft paper. Bill Cunningham contributes our first fashion report. The issue is unbound (like the albums of Paul Poiret, by Paul Iribe and Georges Lepape), the loose pages forming a sort of folio of tear sheets of favorite images.
