FOUND MAGAZINE N°7 (DECEMBER 2009)
[Pop Culture - Magazine - Found Stuff]
A magazine of found writing and art. Love letters, birthday cards, kids' homework, to-do lists, ticket stubs, poetry on napkins, doodles? Whether they're found on buses, at stores, in parking lots or even prison yards, these items give readers an uncensored, poignant, often hilarious peek into other people's lives.
What could be a more powerful way to connect with a stranger than reading the raw and intimate notes and letters they've left behind? Open a copy of FOUND #7 and you'll be dipped into a wide range of captivating lives -- a Baghdad-bound soldier, writing raps and reflecting on his flight to Iraq; the Almighty Patrick, a small-town pizza chef who dreams of life as a conqueror in the Middle Ages; two young women swapping the frankest and most hilarious sexual advice you'll ever read. FOUND #7 contains hundreds of finds discovered from Cleveland to Cameroon, including exotic Post-It Notes, surreal To-Do Lists, rude love letters, and eloquent rejections. Plus interviews with all-star finders Rachel Maddow (MSNBC) and filmmaker Ramin Bahrani, the story of Joel Coen's lost iPhone, and the true-life tale of Willis Earl Beal, who's responsible for perhaps the sweetest and oddest looking-for-love flyer ever created.
