Florence (the city, we don't know this lady's name) photographed by Lina Scheynius.
Archive but who could tell? It looks like today. Hazel Larsen Archer's photograph of Elizabeth Schmitt Jennerjahn at Black Mountain College, 1952-53.
Brice Marden's studio photographed by Adrianna Glaviano. This is a magazine about work. A visual essay on the life / work balance. Told in pictures, it reads like a manifesto for fashion in the new normal.
And this we just love. Kurt Cobain by Anne-Sophie Prévot. Culturally, Kurt's cardigan conveys so much meaning. If anyone can appropriate it now, the Meier's can. It is their moment.
It's a bit nice! Offset-printed on recycled paper. 3D-scanned cover replicating a Japanese floral washi paper handmade in the hills of the Noto peninsula by a 3rd generation paper maker. The issue is stitch-bound with an invisible spine.
