Beecher's Issue One includes interviews with Adam Robinson and Stephen Elliott, and new writing from Joshua Cohen, Alec Niedenthal, Alexis Orgera, Rebecca Wadlinger, James Yeh and many others.
This first issue of Beecher's is a limited edition printing inaugurating the new magazine. Rather than adorning the baby magazine in shiny, colorful clothes, Beecher's One was designed to give the text inside primacy, and as well record the reader's tactile interaction with the physical magazine. The layout is straight-forward, and the text is presented simply in a black serif font on white paper. The physical object, with a naked spine and rigid, toothy, absorbent paper is meant to show evidence of the reader by literally absorbing and recording the reading experience: the hands holding the book, the fingers on the page, the bending of turned pages, the weakening of the unprotected spine.
