Avaunt Magazine Issue 3 is available now at LOREM (not Ipsum). For this issue (our first birthday no less!) our hope is that the words and pictures that follow might encourage you to aim just a little higher when you’re eyeing the fences you’d like to jump.
“When you start an expedition, you feel that everything is flat; everything is white all the way to the horizon.
