THE THING Quarterly
THE THING Quarterly is a periodical in the form of an object. Each year, four artists, writers, musicians or filmmakers are invited by the editors (Jonn Herschend and Will Rogan) to create a useful object that somehow incorporates text. This object will be reproduced and hand wrapped at a wrapping party and then mailed to the homes of the subscribers with the help of the United States Postal Service. THE THING’s current year of subscriptions (issues 16-19) will begin with an issue by American writer and publisher DAVE EGGERS,, visual artist SHANNON EBNER,, filmmaker and visual artist MIKE MILLS and end with an issue by visual artist DAVID SHRIGLEY. Back issue orders of THE THING ship out every Thursday.
THE THING Projects
From time to time, THE THING will release special side THING projects. These will not be a part of the quarterly. These projects will range in terms of price and production: sometimes free, sometimes not, sometimes limited and signed and sometimes neither.
