***NEW SUBSCRIBER SPECIALS***

ONE-YEAR SUBSCRIPTION SPECIAL


The next 30 subscription orders will receive a free limited edition “flat” of Gigantic America Bios artist Andre da Loba’s newest untitled work, pictured above. There will be two sets of Andre’s prints offered as part of this subscriber special; one set of the bear wearing a blue hat, another set of the bear wearing an orange hat. Each set is from a limited edition of 25.

A one-year subscription (2 issues total, beginning with Issue 2, including shipping and handling, and a “flat”) is $18.

Interested parties may PayPal giganticmag [at] gmail.com.

TWO-YEAR SUBSCRIPTION SPECIAL

The next five 2-yr subscription orders will, in addition to receiving a free “flat” by Andre da Loba, receive a free Gigantic Bag!

The special limited edition bags (out of 36) were designed and handmade by Gigantic In-house Illustrator Andrew Bulger, who is pictured above. Silkscreened by hand, constructed from 5 oz. 100% cotton fabric, “100% ecological-friendly.” The design for the hand-printed bags were inspired by the original Gutenberg Printing Press.

Says the artist: “I drew with white chalk on black paper to create a basic outline of the image. Then using an X-acto knife I removed the negative space leaving a black paper version of the design. Photocopying the paper to create a transparency of it, I was then able to use the transparency with photosensitive emulsion to create a silkscreen.”

A two-year subscription (4 issues total, beginning with Issue 2, including shipping and handling, a “flat,” and a GIGANTIC) is $32.

GIGANTIC BAGS are also available separately for the special “limited time only” price of $10 with free shipping and handling.

Interested parties may PayPal giganticmag [at] gmail.com.

Thank you.



Gigantic Issue 2: Gigantic America, Release Party, PPOW Gallery

Many warm thanks to everyone who came out last Saturday for the Gigantic Issue 2: Gigantic America Release Party at the PPOW Gallery in Chelsea! Thank you too to all our readers and performers and to PPOW for hosting the night’s events!

The evening featured a performance by Lydia Bell, original work by Sasha Fletcher and Justin Taylor, as well as a series of “surrogate readings” featuring content from the issue: Nina Schloesser reading Ken Sparling, Joshua Cohen reading Joe Wenderoth, Mike Topp reading Brian Beatty, and Kendra Grant Malone reading Deb Olin Unferth. In addition, the gallery hosted the installation of Brooklyn artist David Mahfouda’s 130-foot, handmade American flag, damaged during celebrations after Obama’s election and restored by the Brooklyn-based Fixers Collective.

Thank you to our photographer for the evening, Annabel Braithwaite for Belathée Photography.  For a full slide show of Annabel’s images from the evening please click here. In addition, The Hostess Project has generously posted a slide show on flickr.

Check out Christopher Koulouris of Scallywag & Vagabond’s pithy recap of the evening here. Thanks, Chris! 

It is safe to say, that this lot are onto something and a thorough read of what they have put out certainly had me invigorated and rather charmed […] With their America issue the editors were intent on discovering what it is to be American, where America lives at this moment and where America is possibly heading.  – Christopher Koulouris, Scallywag & Vagabond

Copies of Gigantic Issue 2: Gigantic America are now available in stores throughout the city, as well as these fine independents across the nation. Subscriptions are also available online here.
