THE NEW ISSUE OF A MAGAZINE IS OUT






















I hate magazines. Honestly. I am not even talking about mainstream thinly veiled advertisements catalogues like Vogue, with their ten thousand must-haves lists that the mindless sheep eats up in steady monthly doses. I am talking about pseudo-creative, pseudo-intellectual, pseudo-indie magazines that sell pseudo-rebellion culture to trust-fund hipsters in Williamsburg. Purple, Nylon, Tokion, etc. - all these poseurs can shove it - their blandness and fakery is mind-numbing. i-D is only half-passable because they still have decent editorials, while the rest of the content is filler.

What's a boy to do? Enter "A" - my savior. This magazine is backed by Mode Natie, and is the most creative magazine I have seen to date. It is only in it's 4th issue (before that I think it was called A-Z magazine), and it hasn't disappointed yet. I don't know what they feed them in Antwerp (must that excellent beer), but the amount of creative talent that has and still is coming out of there is staggering. Anyway, each issue of A is curated by a different designer. This one is done by Jun Takashi of Undercover. You can pick it up in Universal News on Broadway (where else?!), and St. Marks Bookstore. It costs an eye-brow raising $26, though - so if you steal it, I won't blame you.
