In 1992 Olivier Zahm and his partner Elein Fleiss printed the first issue of Purple Prose, running between 1992 and 1998, this Parisian literary art zine that over the years has evolved into Purple Fashion Magazine or Purple Sexe, Purple Fiction or Purple Journal among others.
"We wanted to make a magazine that reflected the way we were, and the way we wanted to live; a magazine that was the direct and spontaneous expression of the vision of the artists we invited to write for, photograph for, and participate in purple prose" And they done it!
This installment features: Fleiss, Dike Blair, Oliver Zahm, Jutta Koether plus many more.
