Greetings and welcome to the new online journal presence of Thomas Bey William Bailey (me.)
For those who are already familiar with my work (I'm guessing that this will be the vast majority of you who are visiting), you are probably also familiar with how quickly this work goes out of print or, more frustratingly, gets posted upon web sites that disappear or in periodicals that are not globally available.
This journal aims to solve that problem by colecting much of my previously published work in one handy place. Of course, one such place is my official website linked to above, but - and here is where 'new visitors' come in - that site is nearly impossible to discover for that special class of readers I value highly, i.e. those who discover my work 'by chance.'
In the following months, I hope to also use this space for excerpts of my current book in progress To Hear The World With New Eyes: A Cultural History of the Synesthetic and Cross-Sensory Arts.
I will also be 'dusting off' some other old favorites, such as interviews with other artists, that have not been featured on my 'main' website for some time, while making available offerings in non-English languages.
For new friends and old, I'm happy to have you on board and welcome any comments you might have.
