Looking forward, looking back: magCultural must-knows


At last!
The 1993 book about legendary UK mag Nova has just been republished with a new introduction. A great book about a beuatiful magazine, plenty of images.

‘The original stylist’
Talking of Nova, Iain R Webb’s 2010 interview with the magazine’s fashion editor Caroline Baker is a must-read. We hear she has a book coming soon too.


Propaganda
Coming up in late September at London’s House of Illustration: an exhibition of Cuban cold war graphics includes stunning propaganda mags like Tricontinental, introduced by HoI curator Olivia Ahmed at last year’s ModMag.


New niche boom
Different Leaf is the latest in a stream of cannabis mags from North America, marking the growing trend towards legalisation of the drug, this time in Massachusets.


Now printing
The Face is about to return to print; watch this space…
