From the bookshelf IV:
OBJECTS - Journal of Applied Arts
Objects is a new magazine, published by Berlin curators Katja Kleiss and Pascal Johanssen. The first issue offers academic essays, loads of images and is "interested in the individual artistic craftwork, the object," as they state on their website. I liked the very unpretentious layout and the approach in general. For illustrators, art lovers and designers, but it will also impress everybody who liked to consider "applied arts" as the commercial stepbrother of "fine arts". Looking forward to issue #2.
(10 euro/In german and english)
