07 May Three independent magazine’s that deserve your attention
An adult design magazine made for modern times-this bi annual publication celebrates visual culture, with compelling imagery and intelligent editorial. From humble beginnings, funded on Kick-Starter, Talc challenges everything you know about adult publishing. The engaging stylistic content takes its inspirations from Barbara Nitke, the photographer who documented porn sets in the 80’s to Leonard Koren, the founder of the daring WET-magazine for gourmet bathing, that was an LA favourite in the late 70’s.

You don’t just have to be a fan of all things surf, to appreciate this visually stimulating publication. Aiming to visualise the beauty of the mundane and explores fringes with art, science, philosophy and poetry-but without sounding too serious. Acid Surfing manages to capture the curious minded, thinking and marveling at the world, through surfing. Expect beauty, humour and a perfect read to those hazy summer days. The second issue is available now.
This magazine will set you back absolutely nothing- a free publication created through its simple, but undisputed love of music. Fully illustrated and playful, this zine collaborates with the most exciting and contemporary artists, writers and musicians of the moment. Celebrating a passion of music, with those who feel the same. The only catch? They insist that you keep going to gigs, buying records and looking at the sleeve artwork as you listen.
