A genius little subscription out of Portland, Oregon.
Here’s what editor Forrest Martin says about Death:
Life is a relationship with fleetingness, and Death is a tri/try-annual magazine that speaks to this; a curated journal asking writers and visual artists to address the topic however they wish, in whatever tone. What is it, and - if I care - why do I care?
At first thought, the word may inspire dark associations. Closer investigation reveals a spectrum of colors and considerations, all the layers of sorrow and humor and ordinariness that might be expected from something so inherently dependent on life. Death magazine isn’t simply reports of human mortality, but perspectives on how death arranges, enhances or obfuscates life - at times metaphorically, at times not. In a bed, on the train, at a computer, at the mall; we all have daily relationships with it. Alongside every overlooked gesture, the fact remains: “this isn’t going to last forever.”
Death: a magazine for the enthusiast and non-enthusiast alike
