Acne Paper Issue 15: LIV — Portraits of actress and director Liv Ullmann from the Swedish Film Institute. Interview with Jonas Rein Seehuus.

The granddaddy of them all in my opinion is Acne Paper. It’s truly an enviable piece and something that I believe can only be done consistently with a successful brand behind it. 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.
