LAB issue 02 cover

What if this issue were a mixtape? Kicking off side A: a photo essay on street graphics, illustrations by Kate Bingaman-Burt, and Joey Sayer’s mini-comix. On side B, a wunderkabinet of collections: pocket protectors, casino carpet, and mac & cheese box covers. More awesomeness in the mix: a chat with a couch-surfing librarian, a folk artist who performs with a crochet alligator, and a builder of paper polyhedrons. So stick a mixtape in the boombox, sit back on the porch, and let life be good to you.
