eL Paper Magazine is an independent publication with a handmade aesthetic that strives to create an open, creative dialogue between visual artists, writers and the public at large. Each number is organized around a particular subject. eL Paper was born in 2009 as part of Local Project independent programs. Issue #0 was part of the “Alternative Histories” exhibition, at “Exit Art” in Chelsea in 2010. Last summer, we published issue #1, which was launched with a celebration incorporating poetry reading, live music and a one-day exhibition. In these first two issues, we have published the work of thirty artists and writers based in the boroughs of NYC. We now want to continue publishing on a regular basis and we are happy to count on a grant from Brooklyn Arts Council to release two new issues this year. The theme of the forthcoming issue is “subway”. We will publish 1,000 copies and, taking a cue from the “cartoneros” of Latin America, 100 covers will consist of an original artwork on cardboard by Brooklyn artist and guest co-curator James Leonard. 

**The Subway Issue, 100 special copies with handmade covers, each one unique and totally different from the other, painted by artist James Leonard. Reserve yours for $20 (pay through paypal: The regular 900 copies will be totally available for $4 (suggested donation). For national shipping please add $5. Support a local publication.
