Issue 18 is by American filmmaker and visual artist Mike Mills. Entitled “The Fabric of Events”, the issue is a minimalist nod to the punk rock aesthetic of the 70s and 80s and serves as both a 2013 pocket calendar and a brief survey of historical events that have had cultural impact on each of us. Only 600 of these were created and designed by Mike Mills. Layout and production by MacFadden & Thorpe. Printed in Canada by The Prolific Group. This issue is sold out.
