We are always excited when a new issue of TOILET PAPER by Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari hits our store. This 9th issue came in today, super colourful and funny again. Toilet Paper's fanbase is growing fast, we have some back issues in the store plus still one copy of the limited (1500 numbered copies) colaboration with Kenzo, KENZINE #1.
Read our interview with them we did a while ago here.

Berlin Quarterly is a new magazine from Berlin that reminds us a bit of Lapham's Quarterly, Boat, Apology and The White Review. The editors look at the world from the German capitol via essays, short stories, poetry, illustration and photography.
This first issue opens with an extended report on Belgrade after Milosevic. They dive into the city and it's changes since the 90's with beautiful pictures.
After that an interview with Edwin Frank from the New York Review of Books Classics series, a short illustrated biography on biologist Ernst Haeckel, Chinese cities portrayed by photographer Sze Tsung Leong and poetry by Ujana Wolf in English translation.

There's a hole in the new issue of ADBUSTERS, a hole pierced right through the entire issue demanding it's space in the design. Sometimes it looks like some world leaders are assassinated and sometimes the hole is just a left out circle on a page that is there being a hole. Must have been a big job for the designers of the magazine to fit the text on the pages just outside of the hole.
They say on the front cover: you don't need a therapist: just buy this magazine. You can do that here.
