THE BLOOD BOOK

The Blood Book is a magazine for creative demonstrations of womxnhood. During her art residency at DE-CONSTRUKT, editor, designer and photographer, Chloe Devine, developed a large portion of the content for the Spring issue of The Blood Book, The Waxing Moon.

This Issue of the magazine aligns with the second phase of the feminine natural cycles - spring, the follicular hormone phase, and the waxing moon. Featured artists include artwork, photography, poetry, interviews and essays by 12 womxn from across the world. DE-CONSTRUKT provided the space for Chloe to develop three different photograph series which are featured in the this issue of The Blood Book, as well as an interview with Maia Radanovic, a fellow artist-in-residence at DE-CONSTRUKT.

The Blood Book is currently doing a 30 day Kickstarter campaign to fund the publishing of the magazine. The mission of the magazine is to be a platform for expression around topics of futility, sexuality, race and relationships. To publish 4 issues per year, in tandem with the four feminine phases of nature, and to be a place for femininity to be celebrated in ALL its forms. To support the Kickstarter: http://kck.st/2ZqEisg
