Another issue of the beautifully designed and much sought-after Tools has arrived at the magCulture shop. Celebrating the act of making—the combination of hand and mind that underlies any act of manufacture—the magazine concerns the meeting of art and science, mixing techniques old and new.
Like MacGuffin, this is a magazine that uses the seemingly prosaic to unlock bigger stories of human endeavour. After the first two issues, themed ‘To Mold’ and ‘To Weave’ respectively, the method under the microscope this time around is ‘To Fold’, cleverly represented by the shiny green (folding) chair on the cover. Another rich issue, bringing together bedskirts, camping tents, fabric pleaters, parachutes, dry cleaners, and a series of beautifully folded table napkins. Très beaux!
