About

The Numuan is Numu Arts Collective's newest venue for sharing the work of the artists in our community-- an annually published journal of writing, art and music. Though our first issue will comprise mostly of the work of Numu's members, upcoming editions will be inhabited by other talented and underexposed artists. Each publication will include a free download card that will feature music tracks from Numu musicians and spoken word recordings.

Each issue will be centered around a specific and interpretable theme. In honor of this being our first issue, the theme is “Birth”. The publication's aesthetic and quality of work will rival those of well-established journals, but it will break new ground, we feel, in the cooperative interplay of literary and visual depictions.

The medium of print publication is rapidly becoming vintage, and we look to support this cherished form of art with The Numuan. Printing is expensive, and the money raised on Kickstarter will be used to create a high-quality publication that will properly showcase the talent of our community and keep this medium alive!

Our community of talented and devoted artists have also donated great prizes for this Kickstarter page-- original artwork, handmade jewelry, and much, much more! We want to thank our artists for their generosity to this project and hope you'll become part of our ever-expanding community by showing your support for this project!

    Signed copy of Salvador Olguin’s photo and poetry book: On the Life of Plants

    This book was inspired by some ideas about the psychic life of plants first written down by German philosopher Max Scheler in his book The Human Place in the Cosmos. It contains a series of polaroids created by the author by means of experimenting with a set of new polaroid photo films, light and puncturing techniques to create plant like shapes and colors.
