This was.

Really.

Great.

A conversation with artist-poet-author Ilyas Kassam led to this co-created piece. It started out in Hanoi, when I called him in London, to discover very delightedly that we could jam well together. So we kept doing that, one step at a time, towards the making of this issue. It was completed in Kuala Lumpur.

Given our mutual shared interests, this issue is highly visual.

It includes a very new, experimentally created poem, too. The poem, called ‘Ionic Jazz’ is one of my favorites from S P C so far.

Suffice to say, I loved making this issue. <3
