Housedeer Issue Number Four

Everett Quinton became famous during his years with The Ridiculous Theatrical Company and he's never stopped acting. He lives in Greenwich Village with his pretty dog, Raindrop, who he dotes on. Any performance of any kind with Everett in it is worth seeing. There's just nobody like him.

Housedeer Issue Number Three

This is the cover of Housedeer Issue No. 3, devoted to the painter Louise Oliver through interviews done with her son and daughter, Edgar and Helen. The cover image is a drawing made for this issue by Regina Bartkoff, called Edgar, Louise and Helen. Last autumn, Edgar Oliver staged a one-man show at Theater 80 on St. Marks Place in New York called Helen & Edgar. In it, he told many stories about Louise Oliver and the childhood years he and Helen spent with her in Savannah. The show earned a stellar review from Ben Brantley of the New York Times

This issue of Housedeer makes a wonderful compliment to that show for anyone who got to see it, but it also stands alone as a tribute to a truly exceptional woman who lived for her art and for her children.

Housedeer Issue Number Two

Issue No. 2 is devoted to the much loved and admired performer, writer and absolute original Justin Vivian Bond. As a transperson, Justin prefers the pronoun v and the honorific Mx to the standard gender-specific ones, and this cover image, Elegant Transdeer,  was created specifically for v by Michele Burgevin. In 2012 Justin unveiled  a fragrance called The Afternoon of a Faun, inspired by a poem by Stéphane Mallarmé  called L'après-midi d'un faune.

Issue Number One

The first issue of Housedeer is devoted to the artist Liza Stelle Condon. She was the daughter of Jazz great Eddie Condon and copywriter Phyllis Condon. Her sister Maggie offers wonderful stories of their childhood years here in New York on Washington Square Park, when Eddie Condon's club was the Studio 54 of the day. The cover image, used with permission, was taken on Bleecker Street in New York City in 1947 by Berenice Abbott, who was a good friend of Liza's.
