Acne Paper #16
270 x 220mm, 508 pages
Editor-in-chief and creative director: Thomas Persson
Art director: Fred Birdsall
Re-imagined as a hybrid between a book and a magazine, Acne Paper returns with its first issue since 2014, themed Age of Aquarius. Each copy comes wrapped in a cover jacket which unfolds as a poster—Age of Aquarius (Cosmic Mask) by Yousef Sabry.
Originally created to help lift the Acne Jeans brand in support of its metamorphosis into a full-on fashion label, the first 15 issues of Acne Papers came in a tabloid-format with a timeless, classic editorial design. This new format remains as smart as ever, yet is quite different to the earlier issues.
