THE THING is an object based quarterly periodical. Each year, four creative types are invited to create and everyday object that “incorporates text.” It’s a pretty simple idea that allows for the writer, musician, filmmaker, or artists to think beyond the usual boundaries of print.

“Issue 7 (a pair of custom eyeglasses) was designed and produced by Project Selima & Matt. The issue features text from Jonathan Lethem’s upcoming novel Chronic City. (Jonathan will also be on hand to sign copies of the issue).”
