This is the latest issue of the art magazine ‘dedicated to amateurs, artists and collectors’, for Spring/Summer 2024.

A somewhat enigmatic issue, this one opens with a hazy, stream of consciousness-like editor's letter from Carine Soyer, which weaves together all you'll encounter within: scrapbooks of vintage Japanese matchbox designs; a tour of cemeteries with André Chabot; the founder of the French art fraud squad; Hubert Cavaniol's embroidered fishermen; an anonymous thong collector (but not wearer); and a dinner with Les Repas Ufologiques bringing together the UFO fandom of France.

Sorry, not enough stock!
