omg what so jealous this is one of my favorite i-D covers :(
ahhhhh same! i honestly cannot even believe i found it. i’m expecting a poster of the cover to show up in my mailbox, or some really jank bootleg photocopy shit. i’m so nervous yet excited for it to ship!
thanks so much y'all! those ones are my personal favorites, but my professor insisted i submit the #1 and #2. idk if there was some weird artistic reason that i don’t “get” for her liking #2 over #3 but i might take a risk and go with it.
It would be a lovely excuse to say that because I have spent time with my young godson recently it is therefore completely understandable that I awoke this morning gabbling strange things to myself, repeating nonsense rhymes while waiting for the kettle to boil, and generally behaving like a demented frog. It WOULD be a lovely excuse if this were not the way I start almost every morning. It’s…

Here is one of the great Wallace innovations: the revelatory power of freakishly thorough noticing, of corralling and controlling detail. Most great prose writers make the real world seem realer — it’s why we read great prose writers. But Wallace does something weirder, something more astounding: Even when you’re not reading him, he trains you to study the real world through the lens of his prose. Several writers’ names have become adjectivized — Kafkaesque, Orwellian, Dickensian — but these are designators of mood, of situation, of civic decay. The Wallaceian is not a description of something external; it describes something that happens ecstatically within, a state of apprehension (in both senses) and understanding. He didn’t name a condition, in other words. He created one.
Perhaps the most striking aspect of this Declarations of Virtues is the clear absence of the noun Maat or its adjectival forms. However, as Lichtheim (1992, 14) asserts “when the main features of right-doing had been established, a man could present his moral self-portrait without mentioning (the word) Maat, the underlying moral principle.” Thus, Harkhuf does not mention the word Maat, but he gives a moral self-presentation which in essence is Maat and thus the word itself is not necessary. All of his basic moral claims are fundamental to the concept and practice of Maat-location, worthiness before God, king, community and family, sensitivity to and care for the vulnerable, good speech, honesty, justice and the moral desire to stand well with the Great God.
