About
The Believer is a monthly magazine where length is no object.
There are book reviews that are not necessarily timely, and that are very often very long.
There are interviews that are also very long.
We will focus on writers and books we like.
We will give people and books the benefit of the doubt.
The working title of this magazine was The Optimist.

FRANK CHIMERO // is an illustrator and graphic designer in Missouri, USA. His clients include the New York Times, Business Week, Starbucks, and Good Magazine. Frank tries to recapture the sense of optimism, playfulness and heart characteristic of the mid-century. He believes in simplicity, honesty, humor, enthusiasm and air guitar solos. He’s particularly interested in the creative process, and how to integrate happiness into it, for both his own enjoyment and the delight of the audience. Sometimes, he teaches design foundations and typography at Missouri State University.

About
Un Sedicesimo is a typographical measure: a sixteen-pages-binding, but is also a magazine! Seventeen centimetres width for twentyfour height. But it’s not a traditional magazine, it hasn’t got an editorial office nor a subject nor a fixed design.

Each issue has a different author, whose job is to create a sixteen-pages-long project.
Un Sedicesimo will be a magazine different at each time, from the headline to the colophon.
It will become a sort of gallery on paper, which proposes a new personal exhibition every two months, six times a year.
In short, it’s not about speaking of graphics, but making it.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Un Sedicesimo starts with many authors ready to go: Steven Guarnaccia, Moreno Gentili, Martí Guixé, Leonardo Sonnoli, Francesco Dondina, Federico Maggioni, Daniel Eatock, Paul Cox, Italo Lupi, Massimo Pitis, Gianluigi Toccafondo, Giulio Iacchetti, Gianluigi Colin and other artists, graphic designers, illustrators, students (why not?), writers and cooks too.

mono.kultur deals with art and culture – or rather with the people who make them happen. In the foreground is music, film, literature. And image. And architecture. And media. But behind them is a creative mind.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

mono.kultur features one interview per issue, no more no less. Carefully selected and designed. No distractions, no gossip, no trendscouting. Instead we offer opinions, experiences, lives.” - mono.kultur

About
“Vague Paper is a satirical fashion newspaper, tabloid format and printed quarterly. Its premise is unlike any other fashion publication as it seeks to have fun in an already self conscious and competitive industry. Using unique distribution methods by circulating free at the London, Paris and Milan fashion weeks and various industry presentations, it insures that the elite read it.
Vague Paper provides news breaking stories, witty columns, slick and stylish photo stories and cutting edge fashion shoots. Our focus is to work closely with emerging talent which means we are always pushing the thresholds of editorial, instead of following it.
By being independent, Vague Paper has the freedom to create a publication that is utterly unique in its understanding of the fashion industry and is free from the constraints of commercial compromise.” - VAGUE Paper

Karen #4

Posted: März 20th, 2009 | Author: dk | Filed under: Lifestyle | 22 Comments »

Have you met KAREN yet? She’s pretty ordinary. KAREN is more interested in the weather than what to wear, sell by dates than celebrity. KAREN MAGAZINE serves up a delightful dish of the everyday, gently observed and presented as something quite unique. A glossy magazine without the gloss. And as it says on the cover of this this little piece of reality, priceless! In KAREN magazine fashion is Lesley and her mannequin Mandy, beauty is a washing line, health is Pat’s and Carol’s bunions. Art is a visit to the local tattoo parlour, and gardening is a mole that needs catching in the garden. KAREN is a very extraordinary ordinary magazine and has become cult reading among those that have discovered her. So, treat yourself and sit down with KAREN. She’d like to meet you.

About
“Ordinary everyday life as filtered through my sensibility. It’s about people, relationships, conversations. It embraces the humour and the sadness in life, the boring and the dull – simple things. Karen likes to get close to the small details in life. It features family, friends, neighbours and other people who come in contact with me. It speaks softly and doesn’t shout.” - Karen Lubbock, Publisher 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

‘Karen succeeds in weaving its humble subject matter into something poetic, profound, absurd and joyful. One issue of this magazine is more interesting than every issue of every other lifestyle magazine in the world put together.’ - David Shrigley from The Observer newspaper’s ‘The best-kept arts secrets in Britain’

About
“LOVE is more than just a fashion magazine. Most fashion magazines are simply shopping catalogues for passive consumers. LOVE is a twice-yearly compendium of inspiration - for designers, for artists, for anyone looking for visual ideas; for anyone who loves fashion and design so much that they want to climb inside the heads of their heroes. LOVE doesn’t follow fashion: it sets fashion’s agenda.” - LOVE Magazine
