During my outing in Aoyama yesterday, I spotted an interesting looking indie magazine called HERE AND THERE (at the Watari-Um bookshop, as well as Nadiff). Published by Hayashi Nakako, it features a lot of photography, some interviews, nice extras like mini-zines and cards, and takes the shape of a giant-sized tabloid. At 2000 yen it’s a bit pricey, but it’s nice to see this kind of thing being produced. I’d first heard of it in an interview with PURPLE magazine’s Elein Fleiss in the latest issue of +81, as she mentions contributing to it (and that publisher Hayashi is a friend). You can order a copy (as well as previous issues) directly from the Nakakobooks website.
