The March issue of German business title Brand Eins has this powerful cover, a visual companion piece to the recent Art Review covers featured here. The headline reads, ‘I want to know everything about you. Why?’ Brand Eins covers are consistently good, and deserve more recognition.
Design/art direction Mike Meiré and Tim Giesen.
Printed Pages, from It’s Nice That, just gets better and better. Launched last year after a period of reflection post–It’s Nice That magazine, it offers a unique voice about contemporary creative work that embellishes their online presence rather than competes with it. The new issue has more pages (130), is perfect bound, and – especially for us magaholics – reveals a new project from Bloomberg Businessweek creative director Richard Turley.
Issue two of Paris-based surf mag Acid is out this week, with plenty more surf-inspired stories. It’s more than surfing though – check the video for highlights including Nicolas Floc’h’s undersea sculptures; two isolated holidays compared; and a great piece about shoreline design. And plenty of acid blues and reds.
The eighth issue of The Ride Journal is available for pre-order now, with more beautiful cover art from Shan Jiang (see full cover after the jump) and a new design using only Eric Gill’s Golden Cockerel typeface. ‘One font publications are the way forward!’ says art director Andrew Diprose.
It’s been a while since issue seven, but the wait has been worth it, the illustration and photography are stunning throughout. Click images for larger versions.
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.
Inside the issue: Olympic gold medal-winning ice skater Evan Lysacek, Ron Burgundy, the war on cancer, a look at the future of retail and a diagrammatic analysis of football corruption.
