Heavy Traffic #2

178 x 253 mm, 170 pages
New York, US
Every 4 months, since 2022
Editor: Patrick McGraw
Design: Richard Turley/FOOD

A new literary publication from magazine junkie Patrick McGraw, who writes in his intro note, ‘Many people have told me that Heavy Traffic needs to be explained. That writing a manifesto would bring the magazine great success. The magazine is heavily edited. But it is impossible for every piece to sound the same…’

Richard Turley (Interview, Civilization) has designed this second issue as a cascade of typography. The first story begins on the cover, and flows through half a dozen pages in 30 point type, and there are black pages that divide the 12 stories, and maybe a grid structure underlying it all. It feels fast, spontaneous, and very readable.

Sorry, not enough stock!
