Above Water 2014

This is a creative compilation published by the creative wing of the Melbourne University Student Union. As far as I know, it was mainly distributed at the university, piled on racks in hallways alongside the student magazine and pamphlets. Considering how unlikely it is that you’ll be able to find a copy I’ll keep this review mercifully brief.

The poems and stories were very good, but the pictures were the real highlight. I have no idea where they find these artists, and why we don’t get such high quality art in other places, like galleries or advertising. My guess is that some of them go into tattooing. The pictures all look as though they’ve been done with fine pens, maybe charcoal. Good stuff, if you can find it.
