The Baffler #56
Bimonthly US mag The Baffler presents a critical, liberal view of politics and culture, alongside short stories, poetry and art. It’s covers provide a blank canvas for an illustrator to highlight a feature in the issue; we spoke to design studio No Idea about this recent cover about counterpublics, drawn by Kurt Woerpel.
All 5,000 copies of the latest issue of Slanted magazine feature a unique front cover image. The pictures, based on an existing body of work by artists Sylwana Zybura and Tomas C. Toth, are the result of an experiment with machine learning, highlighting the theme of the issue, AI. We hear from Editor-in-chief Lars Harmsen about the process.
