Volume 2 No. 3: The Graphic Issue
RHINO Reviews is pleased to present its first Graphic Issue, guest-edited and curated by RHINO associate editor, poet, and graphic poet/artist, Naoko Fujimoto.
“For this issue, I asked each reviewer to explore a book of their choice and express their comments in both words and images, pushing the boundaries and constraints of the traditional book review. Each of these experimental pieces proves that even the book review can hold a physical space in which image, text, thought, and feeling harmonizes to create meaning. I invite our readers to inhabit these spaces in hopes that they, too, might be inspired to incorporate and make sense of these emotionally charged times in their own private creative places.”
Guest editor Naoko Fujimoto was born and raised in Nagoya, Japan. She studied at Nanzan Junior College and received BA and Master’s degrees from Indiana University. Recent work appears or is forthcoming in POETRY, Kenyon Review, Seattle Review, Diode Poetry Journal, and PANK.

Sensory (Tupelo 2020), and three chapbooks: Mother Said, I Want Your Pain (Backbone Press 2018), Silver Seasons of Heartache (Glass Lyre Press 2017), and Home, No Home (Educe Press 2016). naokofujimoto.com.
