Infamous "Doppelganger" Issue with guest editor (and twin) John Strausbaugh Oct 8, 2007
The theme is "the Doppelganger" and the guest editor (a twin himself) is american cultural critic, John Strausbaugh. While Cabinet is always a fine publication, Strausbaugh's innovative contributions make this double issue a collectible (and great fun)! In this unique issue, Cabinet collaborates with Kabinet, a Russian art journal based in Saint Petersburg. American astronauts are compared to Soviet cosmonauts, and there is a "fold-in" essay on cojoined twins.
