Coilhouse is "a love letter to alternative culture" that exists in two forms – a glossy print quarterly and a daily blog. The magazine is produced and published by photographer Nadya Lev, artist Zoetica Ebb, and musician Meredith Yayanos.
Classic Coilhouse blog posts: Top 10 Most Preternaturally Beautiful Men, The Tarnished Beauties of Blackwell, Oklahoma, What Made You Weird? and The Pervert's Guide to Etsy.
A sampling of recent topics: Cthulhu meditation, Adagio in stop-motion origami, Mark Gormley, the "Legofication" of pop music, Meet the Feebles, whip shoes, the Magenta Foundation, stalking your junior high bullies, Outlander (vikings fighting aliens!) and thrift shop douche.
Regular blog columns include: All Tomorrows (sci-fi glories from the deviant age), Better than Coffee (Monday morning audiovisual stimulants), Zo! Style Technician (fashion adventures in space), Weekly Ad Uncoiling (ad smackdowns by copyranter).
The 96-page, perfect-bound Coilhouse print mag is designed to be the kind of magazine you keep around for years. Issue 01 included the intricate Wunderkammer sculptures of Jessica Joslin, Victorian monster portraiture by Travis Louie, a conversation with singer/iconoclast Jarboe, and an excerpt from an upcoming book by science fiction great Samuel R. Delany. Issue 02 includes a history of cyborg hands, a pilgrimage to the birthplace of the atomic bomb written by Mondo 2000 alum Joshua Ellis, neo-Rococo paper dolls by Molly Crabapple, and interviews with Mark Mothersbaugh, Margaret Cho, Selene Luna, Stephane Halleux, Andy Ristaino, Madeline von Foerster and R.U. Sirius, among others. The magazine is available in major bookstores, and can also be purchased on the site.
