A shining newcomer to the publication world, Momma Tried is a dexterous and conceptually playful biannual hellbent on exploring the nature and potential of print culture. The magazine regards itself as a conceptual nudie mag, though nudity is more of an axis for its content rather than the focus. Wonderfully curated, the contributions of emerging […]
I first met Emil Jattne a few years back not long after he’d launched Brooklyn Gin, and being a gin drinker myself I decided to give his creation a try and since then I haven’t looked back, seriously. It really is the best gin on the market, they use fresh ingredients they make the gin […]
Clearly Stated, a project of Ian Aleksander Adams and Josué Rivera, is both a literary publication and a collaborative game for the contributors. It’s like a word version of ‘exquisite corpse’: the first writer blindly hands over a block of text which omits all formatting (punctuation, line breaks, capital letters) for a second writer to […]
Beards are fun. Even more fun when they are seasoned from unconventional materials like, er, plasticky toy dinos, as seen in this editorial spread of Tush Magazine.
With his work Knockers, UK artist Tom Gallant decided to give the classic porn magazine — with their garishness, aesthetically-displeasing layouts and all — a redesign. He drew his input from an entire issue of one such magazine and transcribed its text and images into a grid that reduced these to their average colours. Of […]
The first and only magazine that consists entirely of stickers has just put out its fifth edition. This time it’s hosted by the infamous LODOWN MAGAZINE. According to the press release, there was no preconceived plan, no theme in mind. But what stood out was still a high degree of skulls, satanic stuff and sex. So order […]

Paper Mag pointed us to Kindling Quarterly, a new magazine that celebrates fatherhood and hipster dads, with a comment that it’s ‘kind of cute and very well designed, even if it’s laughably Brooklyn (e.g., every dad pictured has facial hair and is sporting flannels and/or Steven Alan sweaters)’. Hmm, ukeleles, warm portraits lit by natural daylight, whimsical homes… yep, very hipster indeed — and gorgeous too.
Artist Francesca Pastine’s fascinating Artforum Excavation series has her cutting out and extending the pages of Artforum magazine into a dripping mass of rainbow hues. She is based in San Francisco, where she also teaches at the California College of the Arts.

James Aviaz’s special in-between-issues-issue of Everything is Fucked/Everything is OK is inspired by the recent Hurricane Sandy tragedy. Aviaz photographed his volunteer efforts in Staten Island in the wake of Sandy, and a portion of each issue sold is donated to families rebuilding in the Staten Island area.
Illustrator Hannah K Lee has a zine, Shoes Over Bills, where she squares off the cost of shoes against the bills for everyday expenses, like laundry, ramen and toilet paper. This makes it simple enough for anyone to process, even if your brains are of the addled squirrel variety.
In what Vice Magazine purports to be ‘a tribute’ to ‘the world’s greatest photographer’ Anne Geddes — famed for her flair for dressing babies as flowers, insects, bunnies and other random fluffy critters — they have gone ahead to subject fully grown adults to the same indignity for a number of photographs taken by Lee Goldup and art-directed by Jamie Lee Curtis Taete.
