A free contemporary broadsheet featuring writing, art, and design, FULL BLEDE is independently published, designed, and curated by Sacha Baumann.
The masthead is a nod to the newspaper terms “full bleed” (edge-to-edge printing) and “lede” (the introductory section of a news story that entices the reader to keep reading). Combined, FULL BLEDE expresses the newspaper’s intent to publish content that is intriguing, unadulterated, and beyond the edge of standardized borders of convention.
Each issue features collaborators expounding upon a theme and launches in conjunction with an opening or closing reception at a selected Los Angeles gallery.
Issue Four: The Pattern
launching March 3, 2018
at Charlie James Gallery
Our fourth issue will explore the appearance of sameness.
Collaborators will share systems of recurrences, whether found in nature, in society at large, or self-manufactured. The broadsheet will reveal repetition in our environment but also in behaviours, relationships, and personal routines. Artists, designers, and writers elaborate on the air of coherence, which is often the complete opposite: chaotic, messy, and wholly unique, despite its seeming monotony.
