It also features the battle drawings of 13-year-old Alex Brown, 100 frames from Thai filmmaker Apichatpong Weerasethakuls Tropical Malady (with commentary by Dennis Lim), David Greenbergers Tiny Book of Smokes, Angus Trumbles 1727 in Retrospect, and new fiction by Vivien Shotwell. Esopus 7 also inaugurates two new series: Modern Artifacts, presented in partnership with The Museum of Modern Art, New York, and featuring never-before-published documents from MoMAs archives (in this case, a full set of Alfred H. Barr Jr.s preparatory sketches for his iconic Cubism and Modern Art diagram) and Guarded Opinions, in which museum and gallery guards are asked to offer their critical perspectives on the art they oversee. The issue closes with a piece by Tarcher Penguin Editor-in-Chief Mitch Horowitz examining the influence of Ouija on American culture. The seventh invitational CD takes Ouija as its theme. Participants include The Rosebuds, El Perro del Mar, Excepter, the Focus Group, the Earlies, Asobi Seksu and seven others.
