Printing Fashion is a must-read for anybody interested in the role of the magazine today.
This second issue explores the idea of ‘Values’, continuing their materialistic perspective on magazine-making and publication (something the cover image consolidates). For them, ‘to question value means to consider the landscape and multiple trajectories in the making of a magazine.’
One of the immediately interesting features this time around is found toward the beginning of the publication: 'Calculating the value of a magazine' by Ayaka Kitagawa.
In it, Kitagawa proposes a mathematical equation for determining the value of a magazine according to six different factors including 'monetary value, human value and rarity'. E=magCulture²?
