AXIS (129) features Tom Dixon on the cover, and then offers a fascinating look at how “Design Learns from Manga.”
LIFE KNOWLEDGE is a catalog for Birkenstock Japan produced by STUDIO VOICE and Honeyee.com, which means that you end up with something that looks pretty much like average Japanese culture magazine — it includes interviews with various creators (including Kahimi Karie), galleries, and even reviews of current media releases. I like the use of gold foil on the front cover logo and spine.
SIXTIES (Vol. 1) has the tagline “Here comes the 60s now!” As you’ve figured, it covers most things from the period, with a strong focus on the era’s fashion, and it’s with no big surprise that some pieces included Readymade International’s Yasuharu Konishi and Karia Nomoto (she appears in a pictorial). It’s not a pretty magazine though, as I felt that a lot of the photography was very subpar.
STUDIO VOICE (383) spends the issue covering all music genres with their “New Music Context” issue.
