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 [...]


Listen to Ålen, Älgen, Went to War and all of the other fabulous songs by Amason- there are way too many to list here.


As with many, I sometimes find The Art to be indistinguishable from fashion, design, or decorative art, which is completely fine.
