Echo (EN) - DNA 4

DNA – Series

Surprise Subscription #11

Last month’s Surprise was a fluffy, fuzzy treat for the eyes. So for November, we thought we’d change it up a bit, with a challenge for the brain courtesy of DNA - Das Neue Alphabet/The New Alphabet!
Bench Players - Rop van Mierlo

Bench Players – Rop van Mierlo

Surprise Subscription #10

This month is a special month. Because we’ve decided to expand the features of our surprise subscription away from “just” magazines to everything the incredible world of independent publishing has to offer. And we’ve found just the right publication to start with! This book, disguised as a zine, offers a soft transition. And when we say soft, we mean sooooft. Because it is filled with all kinds of the fluffiest animals.

Mono.kultur #49 Santiago Sierra: Anti Avarice Acts

mono.kultur #49 Santiago Sierra

Surprise Subscription #8
The Berlin magazine mono.kultur has been one of our favourite titles from the start. Don't let its small format mislead you – this magazine has what it takes! The compact zine dedicates each issue entirely to one creative mind at a time. In a long and intense interview, the reader dives into their world – from the creative process to inspiration to persistence and experience. But it's not just this profound focus that sets mono.kultur apart. It is above all the fantastic way in which these interviews are conducted, which go into depth and awaken a fascination for a person and their work – even if you have never heard of them before. But mono.kultur #49 hits even deeper. More
Spike Art #68 Summer 2021

Spike Art #68 – Patriarchy

Surprise Subscription #7

Spike Art is not like other art magazines. And yes, we believe that every magazine is special – but there’s something about Spike that has us hooked. Maybe it’s the frenetic four-times-a-year pace at which it’s published, ensuring a new hit of incisive, daring art criticism with every season. Maybe it’s the boldness with which each themed issue stakes its claim. Maybe it’s the energetic, playful design – we especially love the ever-changing design iterations of the magazine’s title, from fluid cursive to balloon animal to spiky scrawl, typifying the magazine’s chameleonic ability to reinvent itself with every issue in order to respond anew to its chosen topic.
The light observer #3 2021 - The Water Issue

The Light Observer #3

Surprise Subscription #6

The play of light at the bottom of a swimming pool, the glitter of the sun off an ocean wave, the reflection of a street lamp on rainy tarmac - we’ve all noticed these small light phenomena. But as its name suggests,‘The Light Observer’ magazine looks closer. Drawing from works of art and photography both historical and contemporary, alongside poetry, philosophy and science, this young magazine observes and explores the behaviour of light: this time through the lens of water. 
This Is Not A Commercial - Art by Veli & Ramos

Typeone Magazine #2

Surprise Subscription #5

In our modern world, everything is designed. Even the letters you're reading right now - from the proportions between large and small glyphs, to the way a round and a straight form come together, to the gaps between each letter. But very few people actually think about type design, even though we come into contact with it every day - when reading, when choosing a product at the supermarket, and, of course, in advertising. The truth is that we should think about type design because it can completely change a message. Basically, it acts as the tone of voice for the written, unspoken word.
A Dance Mag #3 Touch

A Dance Mag #3 Touch

Surprise Subscription #4

Here it is, the fourth edition of our Surprise Subscription with a magazine about body movement and touch, in a time when we had so little of it.
The Plant #16 2021

The Plant #16

Surprise Subscription #3

Depending on where you are in the world, you - like us - are probably just emerging from a gloomy winter time. Here in Berlin it’s particularly grim, but just this week we have felt the first rays of sunshine starting to peek through the clouds, bringing with it new green leaves, tiny flower buds: the first glimpses of spring. Instant happiness! What this tells us, and why we're telling you this, is that plants and nature have a tremendous emotional effect on us, even when we’re living the city life.
Mold #5 2021

Mold #5 Seeds

Surprise Subscription #2

In most cases, mold indicates the end of a journey – the bin. But what happens when you take it as the beginning of the story? When this is the starting point for manifold narratives yet to come? Fantasies you might never have thought of before? 
MacGuffin #9 The Rug
