Pierre Liebaert, does an exceptional job at letting the viewer into the intimacy of this family. Macquenoise is the bittersweet portrait of a mother and son who live a secluded life with only animals for company, at the mercy of the seasons. From this oedipal relationship wells up a violence suffocated by a state of immobility. Sometimes, a look seems to be a cry for help, a warning that we heed while remaining mute, powerless.

This edition, as well as the past issues K48, is highly attractive due to its peculiar trim size and printing. At proximately 5.5 x 6 inches, it is rather small and boxy. But, the size is no shortcoming, for the book is filled with wonderful production values. It comes cased in a thick slip, printed with spot UV on both sides. The book cover has a foil stamped tittle, and a tipped-in photograph. Inside, the magazine explores a wide range of printing techniques which are surprising and rewarding.

A recent submission ”Skeletons in the Closet” by Klaus Pichler, a photographer from Viena, Austria. Without any prior knowledge of the book, I was immediately captivated by its binding, design and peep-hole cover. “Skeletons in the Closet,” is a series of photographs taken at the Meuseum of Natural History in Vienna. It documents life behind the scenes, giving the viewer an aspect of the museum normally reserved for researchers and staff. You may purchase “Skeleton in the Closet” HERE!
