– Shane Lavalette just announced some details for issue 2 of Lay Flat this time co-edited with photographer Michael Bühler-Rose. The new issue looks to be shaping up quite nicely and after the excellent first issue they have a lot to work towards. They are seeking donations to go towards the printing and distribution of the new issue, so please go to the Lay Flat site and donate what you can. It also seems that the first book release from Lay Flat will be coming out next summer, very excited to see what that will be.
