"We miss having a tactile experience..." Platon Poulas is one of the people behind Dead Slow, a strange new magazine concept that we have in the Stack shop at the moment.

"The world suddenly feels bigger again..." Nelson Ng is founder, editor and art director of Lost, a travel magazine based in Shanghai and published in both English and Mandarin. Of course the pandemic has made international travel much more problematic than it used to be, and that will inevitably have consequences for anyone making a travel magazin…

Aaron Beebe is the founder and art director of Plastikcomb, a magazine that champions collage, comics, fine art and more, all of it unified by a low brow pop aesthetic. There’s something raw and rough and experimental about Plastikcomb – its pages break out of the orderly grids of contemporary m…
 
"I don't think we've made the perfect Bum yet..." Lee Marable and Roosa Melentjeff are the editors and designers of Bum, a lovely risograph printed magazine based in Helsinki and dedicated to exploring stories around arts, architecture and design.

Harriet Fitch Little is editor of Kinfolk magazine and editor-in-chief of Kindling, the new title published by Kinfolk to explore the subject of bringing up children.

"American football is a reflection of America – good and bad..." Shawn Ghassemitari is editor-in-chief and creative director of Spiral, the magazine that takes a creative look at American football.

Peter McCain is the creative director and editor-in-chief of Batshit Times, the New York-based satire and arts magazine that released its first issue in April last year.

"We just wanted to know – what do people care about now?" Lea Kloepel is editor of Synchron, the magazine she launched earlier this year with her boyfriend and art director Johannes Farfsing, and which stands out as one of the strangest and most striking magazine launches I’ve seen for a long time.

Bijan Berahimi is the founder and editor of Joon, which he describes as a sort of love letter to Portland.
