‘The Life of Things’
MacGuffin's 12th issue is all about The Log. Inside, we take 'a walk in the woods to explore the design and politics of timber.' As ever, this edition is beautifully-crafted, much like the timber-based designs it features inside. Everything from fossil trees, matchsticks, wood-carving, fast-furniture, illegal logging and more.
Plus, features on the poetry to be found inside the cells of trees, the careful balance between insects, trees and humans, and, most wonderfully of all, 'An Ode to the Log Lady' of Twin Peaks. Another fantastic example of what a magazine can be at its best.
