Modern Matter describes itself as a "forum for truly bespoke art content that collaborates with artists in real and varied ways eschewing static photoshoots and Q&A interviews" and within that mission statement is a whole world of inspiration. Visually, the magazine aims to treat the presentation of the arts as an art-form in and of itself, through an experimental approach to design and non-linear values in the field of editorial content.

It's so beautiful - quality box, photo prints, small fold out posters, large fold out posters, a letter from Juergen Teller in English and françois. It's like the best Fashion Week show package ever, with the highest budget... as an object it works !

Harbinger of a new taste, a window into the by laws and by ways of contemporary Paris, a visually rich book with the kind of intelligence that would have made Deleuze and Guattari break into wild applause…you get the ideal ! TI's love of Double magazine is well documented and every new issue is a cause for celebration! Here's to fashion fearlessly renewing itself.

In its 25 years of existence , Spur , a magazine published by the ,massive Shueisha media empire in Japan has become a powerhouse in its home market.

Referencing is delicate, requiring thoughtful handling to avoid crossing the line into copying. Curator Charlotte Cotton remarks in her contribution that fashion photography’s often transparent use of references may be one reason why the genre is criticized from other corners. But in the end what matters is how a reference is used: when adequately transformed, you may sense a quotation but won’t recognize its source.

I remember sitting in an airport waiting lounge in Barbados a few years back, when a clever young editor made a comment that has always stayed with me.
