Herewith, the latest highlights from our alt-press library, as regularly featured in From the Stacks:

A beautifully written reverie for a lost city, from the New Orleans duet-zine Keep Loving, Keep Fighting / I Hate This Part of Texas. Feminisms in motion at make/shift, a new magazine that’s fresh, feisty, and stunningly diverse. A vivid, nostalgia-inducing tribute to “America’s greatest art form”—jazz—from Stop Smiling. The nude male form, in all its hairy variety, strutting on through the Amsterdam-based Butt. A special issue on translation from Poetry, featuring poems translated into English from 18 different languages. And it’s been a tough year for music magazines, so here’s a happy-tenth-anniversary shout-out to Paste!
