Acne Paper Book
290 x 375mm, 572 pages (softback book in green slipcase)
By Jonny Johannson, Matthias Magnusson and Thomas Persson
The long-awaited book about the seminal fashion magazine Acne Paper is finally here. Produced to the same large format as the magazine itself, it’s a beautiful reminder why we regularly get asked, ‘is there a new issue of Acne coming?’
Ahead of the magazine’s return this autumn, this collection is based on the original series of 15 issues published between 2005 and 2015.
Essays by fashion writer Sarah Mower, magazine specialist Vince Aletti and creative director Thomas Persson open the book, followed by a selection from the issues.
Created to help lift the Acne Jeans brand in support of its metamorphosis into a full-on fashion label, the magazine featured stunning fashion in a classic editorial design. As the project developed it became broader in its outlook, adding archive material alongside its own shoots.
