STORE OF THE MONTH: ZABRISKIE / BERLIN

mono.kultur’s neighbours on the shelves of trusted bookdealers worldwide can be a little predictable sometimes – not that we don’t appreciate our fellow magazine makers, but we’ve come to know each other rather well over the years. So we’re pleased to meet some unexpected titles on the shelves of Zabriskie, a rather wonderful little bookstore [...]

HARD STUFF: PARKETT

Constantly rubbing my eyes when I discovered a collection of the legendary art magazine Parkett in a small Spanish town called Cuenca this week:

The Parkett magazine was found in Zürich in 1984 by a group of friends, with the idea of generating an open exchange between artists and writers on art in Europe and the [...]

MONO.PUNKT #35: INDEX MEXICO 2016

Somewhere on the other side of this planet – well, Mexico City, to be precise – tomorrow evening the doors to Index Art Book Fair at Museo Jumex will open. Hundreds of our Latin American friends will pour into the space and devour the hundreds of fine publications on offer, produced with love and care. [...]

STORE OF THE MONTH: MAGCULTURE / LONDON

For someone as passionate about magazines as Jeremy Leslie of magCulture, our favourite blog on printed matter, we guess it was only a question of when rather than if he would ever open the doors to his very own magazine store. The answer is now, as magCulture the store opened its doors last week to [...]

MONO.PUNKT #33: DUBLIN ART BOOK FAIR 2015

As we speak, our friends in Dublin will be flocking like sheep to the ever so popular Temple Bar Gallery for this year’s edition of the Dublin Art Book Fair. They will be touching, browsing, admiring, coveting, buying all those fine little and not so little wonders of independent publishing, and the rain will stop [...]

VIRTUAL REALITY REPORTAGE

Last weekend, the New York Times Magazine, ever worth watching and recently in the hands of art director Matt Willey – who also designed our issue with Chris Ware – forayed into new territories of virtual reality. The issue came with Google’s cardboard VR viewer that you can slide your smartphone into to access a [...]

ALTERNATIVES IN PRINT: SHUKYU

Back in 2012, we hosted a public viewing when Germany gloriously defeated Greece during the European Football Cup, aided among others by our friend Kohei Ito, who supplied some visuals relating soccer to graphic design. At the time, he already had plans to launch a magazine dedicated to football aesthetics, and three years later, we [...]

MONO.PUNKT #32: FOOKBAIR FRANKFURT 2015

Autumn rains are here, and so is the annual season of art book fairs. With the mother of all art book fairs leading the way a few weeks ago, publishing execs worldwide will move their smartphones to Frankfurt this week for the largest regular book gathering in the world, accompanied this Saturday by its little [...]

PUBLISHING ROUNDTABLE #05: UNCUBE

Last but certainly not least, we’re particularly proud to have digital architecture magazine Uncube join us for our roundtable discussion on independent publishing tonight. Since tablet computers appeared on the market, much has been said about the end of print and the irrresistible allure of a screen in your hands. A few years down the [...]
