LWLies 76: The Miseducation of Cameron Post
We loved Desiree Akhavan’s 2014 film Appropriate Behaviour, a nakedly confessional and self-flagellating portrait of break-up on the mean streets of Brooklyn. We’re thrilled to announce that the director’s brilliant new film, The Miseducation of Cameron Post, has made its merry way on to the cover of our new issue.
It’s a tender comedy which wears its political outrage lightly, as our eponymous, miseducated hero (beautifully played by Chloë Grace Moretz) has to navigate the dorms, mess halls and rec rooms of a Christian gay conversion camp.
On the cover…
We reached out to the Norwegian illustrator Natalie Foss for this eye-popping cover. We love her weird-edged portraits and her evocative use of colour.
Artwork inside the issue…
In the spirit of the film, we’ve embraced more analogue means of magazine making for this issue. Every layout inside has been produced by hand, with the help of scissors, glue and a few big stacks of vintage magazines. In the back section, Sofia Bonatiprovides illustrated portraits while Ben Giles steps up with some exemplary collage work.
