Contrary to the official Instagram feed, it’s not all sneaker drops and new collections in the HS office. Quite a bit of printed matter comes through our doors; not all of it involves naked women, either.

Some of the selections are paper imprints from our favorite brands or agencies, others are indie publications that have piqued our interest — all feature distinctive storytelling, even if it isn’t always straightforward. Sometimes we’re drawn to a particularly ardent piece of prose, other times it’s arresting photography or an unusual layout that makes us revisit an already-read page, sometimes it’s a combination of all three.

Every week we’ll be sharing a few of the volumes that have found a permanent home on our office shelves or in the living spaces of our writers and editors.


The team at Hong Kong-based HYPEBEAST caught up with online radio program and clothing label Know Wave for their 15th issue. With additional feature stories on Thrasher founder Jake Phelps, London grime figurehead Skepta and professional BMX rider Nigel Sylvester, the 220-page volume also includes a selection of limited Know Wave stickers.

Lucky Peach - Power Vegetables!

A must-cop for herbivores, this spin-off of Peter Meehan's Lucky Peach magazine makes the prospect of a vegetarian diet all the more palatable. Titled Power Vegetables! - which tells you most of what you need to know about this magazine - this publication is packed with 272 pages of awesome fruit and vegetable-based recipes ranging from no-brainers like bruschetta and tabouleh to slightly more ambitious inclusions like oranged endive with bread-nut-cheese mix.

Persons of Interest Issue 01

Endeavoring upon its very first issue, Boston-based Persons of Interest meditates on themes of memory, dichotomy and generation. Designed with a minimalist tilt, the handheld issue juxtaposes creatives in a wide range of fields, not limited to architects, photographers, artists and more.

Rabona Issue 05

One of our favorite football publications Rabona has devoted its latest issue to some of the most high-profile derby matches in the world. Including El Superclásico between Argentinian teams River Plate and Boca Juniors, the Ruhr Derby between Germans Dortmund and Schalke, the Intercontinental Derby featuring Turkish teams Galatasaray and Fenerbahçe, and more, the issue is covered by French-Angolan midfielder Blaise Matuidi.

The Tale of Tomorrow

From acclaimed publishing house Gestalten, this gargantuan tome features the subtitle "Utopian Architecture in the Modernist Realm." The comprehensive contents includes overviews of key figures like Le Corbusier, Oscar Niemeyer and Eero Saarinen, as a poignant survey of 20th century buildings. For those with an interest in architects or architectural photography, this bible of over 400 pages is a wealth of knowledge.

Grass Roots

Grass Roots is a passion project by English-Italian photographer Simon Di Principe. This season-long gallery was captured at Hackney Marshes, the UK’s unofficial home of Sunday League Football. Shot on a medium format film camera, the book contains a series of portraits and provocative stills that speak on the community that is fostered every weekend amongst amateur athletes. Complete with a foreword by Di Principe himself, the 120-page volume reveals the humble and passionate nature of these weekend footballers.
