Making a mess of the built environment and the politics of space, one issue at a time. — SOILED
With the arrival of a new year, SOILED has big plans. Building on our first three issues, Groundscrapers, Skinscrapers, and Platescrapers, we aspire to elevate our forthcoming issue No. 4 Windowscrapers: more dynamic, more tactilely pleasurable, and filled with more ephemera for you to soil. Rather than our current model of print-on-demand or lower-resolution PDF download, we seek to do a print run of 1,000 issues through this Kickstarter campaign. Working with a local print house will allow us more freedom to bring our vision to life, to sell SOILED at lower costs, and to distribute issues through independent bookstores, cultural institutions, and communal spaces across Chicago, the US, and beyond.
