Beautiful losersFALL WINTER 2020
There are infinite ways to fail, and just as many to deal with it. But what is failure, really? And how can we excel at it? This issue of maize is a celebration of losers—what we call “seconds,” or “eternal lasts”—because they can be more likeable (and more successful) than winners.
