Loplop in a Red City, by Kenneth Pobo
In case you didn’t notice on our (slightly redesigned) home page, Kenneth Pobo’s Loplop in a Red City has a cover! The central image is a 1930 painting by Max Ernst, Loplop Introduces Loplop. I’d like to say we chose the bird to coincide with this year’s Chinese calendar animal, the Fire Rooster, but it’s just an auspicious coincidence!
