The Coyote Journal: Neptune's Lounge

Publication Design

The coyote is a storytelling fixture in North American folklore. He is the unreliable narrator, the shape-shifting trickster. What follows is a composite from a trip taken by photographers Jonathan Levitt and Jesse Lenz and reporter Seth Putnam between the Florida Everglades and Cumberland Island, Georgia.

Issue 1: Neptune's Lounge is a blend of experiences and anecdotes, true in experience if not chronology. It is the kind of fever dream one might have while sitting in a bar named for the God of the Sea: overheard snippets of conversation, characters in conflict, scenes of a land trying to come to terms with itself.
