Acne Paper

It’s format is ballsy and still incredibly delicate, with it’s recycled paper stock mimicking that of a very high-end newsprint. 

The typography is well-executed and the photos impeccable—it’s no wonder it’s released every two years. The amount of work that goes into each issue is evident.

PUSS PUSS Magazine
For the past year and a half, my brain has been focused more on printed matter than digital, so I thought it would be appropriate to share some of my favorite magazines.

Esther Stewart

Esther Stewart is an Australian artist. At first glance her work seems to be digital, but it's actually painted. Her work is simple—but that’s not a bad thing. It might seem easy to draw geometric shapes and color them in, but getting the balance between both sides is really quite difficult.
