Sunday Zine Review #03: The Travel Almanac #02

The Travel Almanac can't really be considered a zine but due to the small number of ads in it (only 4 pages) and the self-published feeling of the A5 size I thought of posting about it on the Sunday Zine Review.

I got the first issue back in June, David Lynch was on the cover and it was mainly the reason why I decided to buy it, but then found out that Lynch wasn't the most interesting thing in the magazine. The Travel Almanac is, as you might have guessed, a magazine about travelling but from a completely different point of view on what we're used to when we think about travel magazines.

It presents a series of interviews with musicians, artists, designers... in which they talk about their travel experiences, usually from a very personal approach that makes the readers feel related to those stories. The Travel Almanac is not about places to visit, but about all the emotions that someone can feel while travelling to a new place.

Issue #02 includes interviews with Will Oldham (Bonnie 'Prince' Billy), Bernard Sumner (from New Order), model Alek Wek, singer/actress Juliette Lewis and designers Helmut Lang and Bernard Willhelm. As in the first issue, a nice review on some hotels around the world is presented. The last 4 pages of the magazine are probably my favourites, they are a blank travel log so you can write about your own travels.

Sunday Zine Review #02: OWT #09 'Chance'

Second Sunday Zine Review, this time OWT #09 'Chance' .

OWT is a design collective based in Manchester, I discovered them when I was living in Liverpool and immediately liked what they do. The 4 members of the collective put together a zine called OWT with a different theme for each issue, so a few months ago I decided to send them some of my work for OWT #05 'Atmosphere'.

I loved the result so I sent a couple of photos for OWT #09 'Chance' . The zine is a collection of photos, illustration, collage and other types of media (you can even find an original Kodachrome slide) put together nicely in a quite innovative format. Browsing through the zine you can find different interpretations of the theme 'Chance' by 20 creatives.

You can find more about OWT by clicking here and order a copy here.

Boys on Film 03

Here's the new issue of Boys on Film. The first issue of the Girls on Film and Boys on Film series came out in March this year and I have been editing one issue per month since then so I have to thank everyone that has contributed.

Next issue will be Girls on Film, for more info on submitting click here.

By the way, today I started working as a volunteer at Stills, which is a really nice photography gallery here in Edinburgh.

Sunday Zine Review #01: Bronze Age #01

I've just decided to do this new section on my blog, the Sunday Zine Review! So if everything goes well expect a new review every Sunday at around this time :)

I was in Glasgow last Thursday and paid a visit to Mono. When I was living there I knew about Mono just around 3 months before leaving, it was a shame but actually it was good for my money cause I would have been spending every single penny there.

This new space called Good Press Gallery has just opened in Mono. They sell a huge selection of fanzines and I wish I had had some more money with me when I visited them. I browsed through several publications and finally decided to buy a copy of the first issue of Bronze Age.

What I first liked about it was the paper used on the cover and the fact that it was hand stitched, inside there's a great selection of young artists from several disciplines. Bronze Age is curated by Justin Bailey and Nick Lynch. For more info on the project and on how to get a copy visit their site.

I hope to see a new issue soon!

Palladium Tokyo Rising

I've been posting regularly contents about Palladium Boots and their Explore series but the videos that I present today are definitely the coolest so far because Pharrell Williams is in them.

This is what Palladium Boots have to say about the Tokyo Rising videos: ' The series explores the creative forces that have been a constant source of inspiration for the musician throughout his many projects and we see the architecture, fellow musicians, artists and the parts of the city itself that have been an inspiration as well as an insight into all the hidden gems Tokyo has to offer.

Pharrell has been a great supporter of relief efforts for the Japanese citizens affected by the incidents of 3/11 and he jumped at the chance to visit the metropolis that has had such an impact upon him as an artist and as an individual as this beloved city faces a new reality after the tragedy of 3/11.

While persistent challenges still lay ahead, the city’s creative class is hell-bent on making sure that their hometown thrives. Innovative and resilient, they are defining the future of Tokyo on their own terms. '

Hope you enjoy these videos!
