Image Archive on SALE
1 for $7 or Customize Your Bundle of 4 for $20
Dear Image reader,
You’ve probably noticed by now that you can read a lot of our back content here on the website. You might also have noticed that the web content only goes back to issue 50, when we started asking writers for web rights. But there’s a LOT of great, timeless content from earlier issues—and I want to offer you a chance to read some of it.
So for the season of Lent, we’re offering a special deal on back issues: 1 issue for $7 or 4 issues for $20. That’s more than half-off the regular price.
And what better time than Lent to add Image to your bedside table? To take a step back from the frantic inertia of the world, and instead foster attentiveness to the whispers and revelations of art and literature?
Not sure where to start? Here are some of my favorite gems from the back of the closet:
- Some of my favorite interviews: Carolyn Forché (issue 39), Richard Rodriguez (34), Wim Wenders (35), and Stanley Hauerwas (32)
- Issue 28: poetry by the inimitable Australian Les Murray
- Issue 44: poems by the late Franz Wright
- Issue 33: Bret Lott in defense of sincerity
- Issue 39: two of my favorite short stories we’ve published, by Paula Huston and Sufjan Stevens
- Issue 40: sculptor Ted Prescott on his ambivalent relationship to modernism (and a great epistolary short story by Robert Olen Butler based on a real-life postcard from 1909)
- Issue 41: Julia Kasdorf’s feminist essay on art as domestic work
- Issue 42: another of my all-time favorite short stories, by the inimitable Joy Williams, and a brilliant essay by Robert Clark on London, Dickens, and modern art
- Issue 43: Ron Austin on Hollywood’s secret fears
- Issue 45: Tim Rollins and the Kids of Survival: art made in collaboration with students at under-served public schools
- Issue 47: David Griffith on Star Trek and Abu Ghraib, plus the gold-leaf realism of painter John Cobb
Or, browse the tables of contents of ALL our back issues.
I hope you decide to take us up on this offer, and I hope you find something you love. Hurry and order now. When they’re gone, they’re gone. Happy reading!
