News__ Miranda July is a Lost Child

November 22, 2011 | By

What were you doing when you were seven?

When filmmaker-artist Miranda July was seven she created, imagined, and told stories. Today, she is still doing just that. "I know I’m telling the same story I’ve been telling since I was seven," she told Du Magazine. And here it is--literally--Miranda July’s story, titled Lost Child!, written when she was seven. Take that Rimbaud!

Lost Child! is about being a weird girl with weird long arms, following a voice from the sky and, of course, getting lost. But, appears July wasn't really lost at all, as Swiss publishing house Nieves has released the limited edition of 100 of her new/old childhood zine for purchase.

If childhood artifacts aren’t your cup of tea, there are more Miranda goodies to check out.  A pop-up shop to go along with another book release, It Chooses You, is currently at Partners & Spade.
