On the cover of the new F magazine


That's John Schultz, founder of F magazine and the Story Workshop method, holding up the latest issue of F at the launch party. The picture on the cover is from my series of James Joyce etchings. F magazine is probably unique in the world of literary magazines in that it publishes long extracts from novels in progress. I am extremely proud to have my print on the cover, and equally proud to call John (and managing editor Tom Popp) a friend.

Do look at their website or Facebook page, but more importantly, go out and buy a copy of the magazine.

  1. Philip, your pieces on the covers of last three issues of F Magazine have drawn many people to take hold of the books, gaze into your renderings of scenes from the “Night-town” section of James Joyce's Ulysses, and then open further into the scenes and stories within. Your work was very appropriate for our covers in that they were images of dramatic moments. Still images that produce a sense of movement, gesture, expression, and at times an exchange of words/dialog. And all of them have that quality of “Something just happened,” “Something not-to-be-missed is happening,” and “I want to know what happens next,” which all drive well told stories. Thank you so much for contributing. (If one goes to the F Magazine Facebook page, she or he can see all three covers with your work.) ---Tom Popp, Managing Editor, F Magazine

  2. Well done, Philip. You make images people are drawn to look at, contemplate, and appreciate. I know firsthand.
