steppe via Exact Editions

"steppe is an eclectic and inspirational guide to the arts, history, culture and landscape of Central Asia. Printed twice a year, steppe stretches boundaries and looks beyond traditional subjects by showcasing the immense variety Central Asia has to offer - from ancient history to cuting-edge architecture; from majestic landscapes to the region's opulent interiors; from ancient rock drawings to contemporary video art; from historical figures to living legends; plus textiles, music, books, cookery and much, much more. The trial issue features an article by Josh Abrams showing that its not all 'bread and circuses' when the price of wheat rises, Robert Chandler visits the Igor Savitsky Museum and Gael Guichard ventures out onto the ice with fishermen who make their living from the Aral Sea. Other features include a review of contemporary art from Central Asia by Elena Sorokina, a report on the Desert Treasures in Berlin and Mannheim and Marinika Babanazarova describes the birth of the Uzbek School of Art and Savitsky's passion for collecting its work"
