Vis-Ed / Vol. 1

A new magazine appeared on my doorstep that I didn’t recognize, Vis-Ed. I was stunned as I flipped through it – there are no ads (aside from the inside front and back covers)!? Apparently Vis-Ed was the title of the artist section in XLR8R and now it appears it has become its own publication!

The best part is this pull-out poster designed by Damien Correll!

  • At $4.99 US $6.99 CDN its definitely one of the cheaper art related mags out there! Keep an eye out!

  • bdpowell

    Wow! 4.99?!? I was just about to commemt that it must be about $ 30.00 a pop!

  • I don’t think it’s a regular magazine but a one time special edition that reprints some of the old Vis-Eds.

  • is this bad piece in stores?

    • i think so? it was mailed to me so i’m not sure, i haven’t seen it around here yet
