The super scarce first issue of Olivier Zahm and Elein Fleiss' first publishing project. Running between 1992 and 1998, Purple Prose changed the independent magazine game radically, blending poetry and post-modern cultural theory. It was the predecessor of Purple Fashion and its many spin-offs such as Purple Sexe or Purple Journal among others. This first installment features literary works by Dike Blair, Andrea Zittel, Joshua Decter, Henry Bond, Daniel Lerner, Jutta Koether plus many more.
