Here’s a unique chance to buy a bundle of magazine-orientated goodies for the true magCulturalist. The magCulture bundle comprises a signed copy of The Modern Magazine, a copy of My Favo(u)rite Magazine and the latest edition of Gym Class Magazine.
Together they give a strong overview of editorial design from today and yesterday. And together they cost less than separately. Win-win!
At last weekend’s pop-up magCulture shop the best-seller was the new issue of Hole & Corner, hot off the presses and in shops this week. Another beautiful overview of contemporary British (mainly) craft and skill, it benefits throughout from some lovely woodblock typography by Kelvyn Laurence Smith. Expect winemaking, motorcycles, tanning and pianomaking alongside a look back at fifties magazine Country Fair by Richard Benson.
This video gives a quick overview of The Modern Magazine conference we held at Central Saint Martins a few weeks back.
Look out for some more detailed videos here over the next weeks.
