On the Journal:
'The third issue of Ladybeard is published this week. The covers of the first two issues were consciously beautiful: Sex featured an artfully styled lifesize photograph of a dildo, and Mind was represented by a psychedelic illustration from Rose Pilkington. The new issue tackles Beauty, and its pair of front covers challenge our concept of beauty by being resolutely un-beautiful by any traditional measure.
Each cover option features a full-bleed wraparound image by photographer Anton Gottlob; one an unretouched close-up of an older women’s mouth, a rare sight in magazine-land, the other a similarly tight crop of an arsehole, even rarer! Each is disturbing in its own way, and together they represent a significant change of tone for Ladybeard that is emphasised by design changes.'
