Going to the shopping mall is super awesome jet set cool. With so many stores to browse, so many things to buy, we are fulfilled. With a food court to gorge ourselves, to replenish ourselves, to be better shoppers, we are complete. Children’s clothing- home furnishing- computers- books- jewelry- cards and gifts. The variety is mind boggling. And it’s all for you.
Going to Tip of the Knife is a similar experience, so many stores to visit. We have David Chirot’s eerie frightening images, Francesco Aprile’s call to arms, Marilyn Rosenberg’s fluid forces, Richard Kostelanetz’s romance novel parody and Ryosuke Cohen’s manic rubber stamp pileup.
So in the end TOTK has as much variety, as much visual impact as any mall, but ours is better because we offer 7 different stores per mag. And it’s all for you.
