Like many I am curious and intrigued by the world of Japanese fashion and product magazines. Walk into any Japanese bookstore or grocer and you are presented with an array of rags covering every topic with an intensity and devotion like none other.

But have you ever wondered which international magazines the Japanese design and fashion editors love to hunt down? Good thing for us, BNN of Japan has released, “from Magazines: a collection of design – fashion – culture magazines all around the world.”

Edited by Toru Hachiga, founder of bilingual design magazine +81, “from Magazines” documents and references over 140 publications from around the world. PingMag has a great interview with Hachiga on the book and even notes some of his favorite standouts (some of which I subscribe to): WAD, SuperSuper, and M/M.
