Brass Sopaipilla is the first issue of the first volume of adj noun magazine, a literary publication of fiction, poetry, visual art, and everything else. From the title page: "A sopaipilla [so-puh-pee-uh] is related to a cloud: consumption involves a puncturing with teeth through the shell, directly followed by, if not entirely coupled with, rapid deflation of the pillow-like object, ending in an encounter with the famed inner succulence. The consistency of that interior is reminiscent of the most viscous of ambrosias: smooth, homogeneous, and especially devoid of grainy particulates like 'reflections of reality.' The brass sopaipilla, a relative of the cloud through association with the sopaipilla, surely must inherit some of those traits. However, we expect differences to arise at least in the rigidity of the shell and diversity of the interior."
Brass Sopaipilla is 45 imperfectly bound pages printed in an edition of 200. Its cover was letterpressed in various colors, and many copies have covers for their covers, strips excised, printed upon, and reappropriated from a copy of Taschen's Dezallier D'Argenville: Conchology/Shells purchased in Paris, France. They are removable and can be used as posters or hats. (Note: copies with covered covers are now sold out. See normal copies.)
Brass Sopaipilla is currently available in the following bookstores: Ada Books, Symposium Books, Cellar Stories, Berl's Brooklyn Poetry Shop, and The Brown Bookstore for 6$. It used to be purchasable right here online for 7$, but I'm no longer sure I have any copies left. Send an e-mail if you'd like me to check the secret nooks.
We also welcome donations. Note that all money we receive goes directly to the cost of book production; we don't keep any.
