Latest Paper Based Reading

Lodown Magazine released their latest issue, number 58. The latest issue features GZA, Chrome Hoof, Dan MC Pharlin, Gus Van Sant, Chloé, Kim Simonsson, The Oil Crash, Bumblebeez, Colson Whitehead, The Fantastic Nobodies and many more. It is now available in their online store for purchase!

Theme Magazine dropped their Fall ’07 Issue. This issue features people who haven’t just thrown money at a problem, but rather worked creatively, using their own talents to change a little part of the world. Yoshihihiro Tanigu’s Digmeout’s do-gooder strategy pairs emerging artists with real clients; Artist Miwa Koizumi repurposes trash to create nature-themed art.

It’s been out a couple of weeks, but we thought we’d mention it anyways – the new Monocle Issue. As usual very interesting and just perfect to get a bit out of the constant fashion/streetwear reading. From the Longest Serving Leaders, Starbucks opening in Russia to music and of course the Monocle Manga, you will not get bored!

The latest  Streetwear Today is being released. It places emphasis on the concept of “pushing buttons”, i.e. to set an impulse, to make something run, to work on it and test it – like startin’ something and tryin’ something new. They cover Florian Böhm, Ron English, Funkmaster Flex, JB Classics, and lots more. STW2D Issue 22, something you should definitely check out!

Last but not least we also want to mention a new book that just recently dropped – Traphic. TRAPHIC is the first visual book by Thomas ‘Marok’ Marecki in a series of conceptual publications by Unagi Books, also including an essay by journalist Renko Heuer. TRAPHIC presents an interpretation of various networks, time frames, experiences and the general surroundings of modern-day existence, through a combination of visuals and texts based around the headline : ‘traffic’ + ‘graphic’ = TRAPHIC. Published by Unagi Books.
This should keep you busy this coming weekend!
