Magazine Party was started to bring magazines back to the art form. Similar to Glenn O'Brien's TV Party, Magazine Party aims to hold back from that technically slick feel that defines so many modern publications. Instead it encompasses a more DIY approach, which focuses on a more stripped down style; a style where art itself becomes the core of the design and content aesthetic. For this reason the zine has a limited run and is printed and bound by hand.
Magazine Party serves as a forum for friends and artists to contribute something that is a little left of center and gives them the ability to expand from their usual work. Some of these submissions include:
- barbarian drawings by Fergadelic
- comic based off Master of Reality song titles by Jess Rotter
- Vena Cava paper doll cut out wardrobe drawings
- Kenzo Minami pornographic mosaic collage
....and many more
ok that was the official professional sounding description of the mag. it's a zine for fun, it's a zine for art, it's a zine that gives you more than just what new band is coming out. it's also a little extension of I Heart. bringing friends and artists together.
COLETTE even put me in their september newsletter! check it out!
i promise to keep you more updated on the official release of the zine. it will be available at a few stores worldwide (distribution still working itself out as we speak) and it will also be available through ME! only 100 copies will be made so get em while it's HOT!
