Acne Paper #17

270 x 220mm, 500+ pages 
Stockholm, Sweden
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 in full form, with glossy red book jacket, hairline type, fictional art world personality and all.

Part art journal, part biography, with a five chapter memoir in the middle, this latest issue centres around a fictional character, Atticus, who begins life as a dancer before becoming an art world fixture and celebrating his 100th birthday this month.

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.

Sorry, not enough stock!
