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 [...]

PUBLISHING ROUNDTABLE #04: IL PARADISO

Joining us at the last minute for tomorrow evening’s publishing roundtable is another worthy Berlin project that goes by Il Paradiso. Published annually every spring, it comes just in time for planning your summer travels – which is just as well, with Il Paradiso dedicating each issue to one country and with summer very much [...]

PUBLISHING ROUNDTABLE #03: FLANEUR

Flaneur magazine came out of nowhere (Berlin, that is) and turned out to be one of the great editorial surprises in recent years, and very successfully so. Their concept is downright minimalistic: every issue explores not just a city, but a specific street within a city – from Kantstrasse in Berlin for their debut issue [...]
