A German-American analog art publication (and feast for the eyes) proclaiming loudly, 'Digital is dead!' Plastikcomb exists as a physical space to 'break the mould of typical magazine formats with experimental editorial design'. Inside, you'll encounter a 'diverse line-up of visual content makers.'

This is their fifth issue to date, opening with a quote from the New York-based, Austrian graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister: 'It's fantastic that two designers with no formal training are creating a magazine.' We concur, Stefan.
