anobium #01

Anobium was a literary journal I founded, developed, managed, and built from 2011 to 2015. We focused primarily on experimental literature, poetry, and other hybrid literary forms, as well “outsider art” from the around the world.

This was the first printed publication released by Anobium. It was collaboratively designed by myself and my brother, Jacob van Loon, who also provided original artworks for the book. I oversaw all content curation, editorial operations, creative direction, as well as marketing and publicity for the release.
