Grab your government issue water ration and slip on your gas mask: Smith Journal issue #31 is going underground.more
In this volume you’ll ponder the architecture of the world’s fallout shelters, go hunting with some hardy Greenlanders (and their hardier dogs), unearth teeny-tiny meteorites in your own backyard, and learn how to write the ultimate complaint letter care of Ernest Hemingway and Cormac McCarthy (or at least some more gettable writers pretending to be them). You’ll also trek through some mountains that may not actually exist, marvel at the artistry of pre-digital infographics, cop a noseful of the new Smell-o-Vision, and take an anthropological survey of the modern office. What else? Well, we’ve got Bruce Springsteen (sort of). We’ve got Indigenous artificial intelligence. We’ve got tarps (tarps!). We’ve got made-up languages that might just shape how you see reality itself.
