anobium #03 (noospheria)

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 third printed publication released by Anobium—and likely our proudest work. It was collaboratively designed by myself and my brother, Jacob van Loon. I oversaw all content curation, editorial operations, creative direction, as well as marketing and publicity for the release.

Features writing and other work from: Timothy Schuler; Caroline Picard; Blaster “Al” Ackerman; Benjamin Schachtman; D.E. Steward; Daniel Carter; Brandi Wells; Lauren Goodman; Jonathan Greenhause; Ben Merriman; Cassandra Seltman; John M. Bennett; Adam Levin; Bruce Bickford; and more.
