Accidentally On Purpose photo magazine

At the risk of tooting my own horn, I was tickled to find out that one of my photos was selected for the cover of Accidentally On Purpose Vol. 4!

Accidentally On Purpose - Accidentally On Purpose Volume 4

It's a really cool magazine for film lovers. From the 'About' page,
Accidentally On Purpose presents an unconventional view on contemporary photography.

The project explores the sometimes unpredictable nature of analogue processes and is a celebration of some of the world's most exciting, talented and in some cases unseen photographers.

Compiled of accidental and originally discarded photographs, specifically from film, Accidentally On Purpose gives these unique images a new home in order to share their beauty.
A friend of the friend in the UK saw it on a newsstand there. I need check some of the bigger magazine stands here in Seattle to see if I can find a copy in the wild.

For details on the image, it was shot on a Pentax LX with a slipping film advance. Porta 800. Probably an A 50mm 1.7.

I've posted it before but here's a larger version:
