A new and very accomplished one on traditional and lost human output. Exciting.
"Aiming to celebrate and preserve diverse folk artistic practices—particularly in light of the overused folk revival moniker — the first issue of ROAM profiles creatives from a diverse range of backgrounds to offer a more inclusive and cross-disciplinary look at the modern folk movement.
The archeologically-inspired contents page of this first issue gives an indication of this fresher approach. 58 artists and creatives are clustered together thematically, branching out across mediums, which include everything from sculpture, film festivals, foraging, scavenger hunts, map-making and more, all engaging folklore in their own ways.
We hope to show through this body of work that the folk art world is branching out in new and exciting directions, rather than stomping old ground."
