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 <a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Kickstarter campaign</a>. 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.</p> <p> Get dirty with us in 2013! Help us spread the word far and wide. And did we mention the promise of excellent swag that you could earn by supporting our campaign?&nbsp; You have until <strong>February 1st </strong>to support this independent publishing endeavor!</p> <p> More info:<br><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"></a><br><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">http://kck....</a></p> SOILED's third installment: Platescrapers Joseph Altshuler 2012-04-02T11:24:00-04:00 >2012-04-02T12:35:04-04:00 <img src="" width="650" height="433" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>Platescrapers navigates itinerant fare, comestible politics, and gastro-ritual to purvey stories about social issues and exaggerated realities; each story illustrates food as a monument to galvanize the public.</p></em><br /><br /><p> SOILED is an architectural periodical based in Chicago.
