They Say You Should Never Judge a Book by its Cover…
We are very happy to have the latest multi-colour, glossy (and not so!) art magazines in stock. Judging by their covers, these are on the cutting and slicing edge of their genre and there’s a wide variety of different styles and budgets…
At the high end, and described by Time Out, as “the best art publication by miles”, Parkett is high-quality. With its book-spined design, it is fully illustrated in colour; and self-described as “a large library and a small museum of contemporary art”. Beautifully presented, it’s definitely a keepsake.
Rooms Uncovered brings the latest from a global subculture, showcasing arresting artwork from hidden and not so hidden international artists and other creative thinkers. Image-heavy and surprisingly affordable at less than a fiver.
Art Forum is the fashion mag of the glossies with beautiful images
and reviews of best art of the year 2011. A great overview for the those hungry to know what’s going on out there, or event to argue their choices!
Since 1976, Art Monthly has consistently offered informed and highly readable coverage of the current art scene and is noted for its independence and the quality of its writing in features, reviews and editorials.
Kingbrown arrives as elusively as a street-artist in a New York subway in the 80’s. Produced by street artist YOK and illustrator-artist Ian Mutch, it captures the work of internationally acclaimed artists that use a variety of mediums.
Source continues to show arresting photographic reviews. I love it. While frieze with its still-life photographic issue is “insightful, intelligent and exquisitely designed”…. it “is the leading magazine in contemporary art and culture.”
Raw Vision, is as it says on the tin. It’s not glossy, it’s raw and it’s real.
Cabinet, provided the perfect Christmas present for family member. This issue is entitled Forensics, but as I look it through it I wonder is it really me who wants it, rather than he? Enough writing; I just want to read and be absorbed…
