Find inspiration in our reviews, enjoy some interviews with amazing people and get to know about our latest activities in Berlin and around the globe.

Astra #1 – Ecstasy

Astra #1 – Ecstasy

Surprise Subscription #19
At a time when the borders created by language and culture have never been so porous, and when the idea of distance seems to grow smaller with each passing year, it is surprising how few truly international literary magazines can be found in the world of printed matter. Of course, most literary reviews feature occasional pieces from around the world; but if you happened to be in search of one whose primary goal was to establish a cosmopolitan community through the medium of a magazine, you would be hard-pressed to find it. Until now!  More
Real Review #12

Real Review #12

Surprise Subscription #18
Here at do you read me?!, we are blessed with all sorts of interesting customers. Tourists from all over the world in search of unusual publications (and lots of tote bags); awkward couples on obvious first dates searching our shelves for books as well as a basic thread of conversation; the occasional gigantic dog roaming in with its owner and promptly sprawling over a sizable section of our little shop. But in the end, nothing tops the simple pleasure of seeing a customer derive visible, almost tactile joy, when they finally hold the latest issue of their favourite magazine in their hands. This month’s installment of our Surprise Subscription is a prime example of this particular phenomenon. We are excited to share with you… Real Review! More
Rejected Designs for the European Flag

Rejected Designs for the European Flag

Surprise Subscription #17
In light of the recent presidential election in France–whose results further reflect the deepening political polarization throughout Europe and the Western world as a whole–we thought that Rejected: Designs for the European Flag would be a timely choice for this month’s installment of our Surprise Subscription.

The Lissome

The Lissome

Surprise Subscription #16
For a long time, the terms fashion and sustainability seemed contradictory. If anything, sustainably produced garments were clothes - but never fashion. Fortunately, the world has changed since then and there is now a new generation that no longer separates style and responsibility. The Lissome is a brainchild of this generation. More
One Ingredient Recipes

One Ingredient Recipes

Surprise Subscription #15
In our Surprise Subscription this month is a treat from the curious, charming publishing house Happy Potato Press. While we fell in love with all of Happy Potato’s creations immediately, we have to admit that the cheerful yellow cover of ‘One Ingredient Recipes’ in particular always brings a smile to our faces. And we thought perhaps it could do the same for you! More
Record Culture Magazine

Record Culture Magazine

Surprise Subscription #14
In this month’s instalment of our Surprise Subscription, we are super excited to present the new issue of one of our all-time favourites - the fantastic Record Culture Magazine! Karl Henkell, editor-in-chief of Record, thought of something special for us: a curated playlist to go along with this issue. Take a listen while you read our review! Record, published twice a year, takes a deceptively simple format - long-form interviews accompanied by photos - and elevates it by the quality and integrity of its contributors. The magazine’s mission is to shine a light on the people intrinsic to niche music communities around the world, and it delivers every time. More
The Future Of…Nostalgia

The Future Of…Nostalgia

Desired Landscapes #5 2021

Desired Landscapes

Surprise Subscription #12

We all have an idea, when we travel there, of what a particular city is really like, or at least what it should be like: we picture Venice without all the tourists, Paris without the graffiti, London without the painfully-expensive ticket prices on the Tube. But those things are part of the truth of the place, aren’t they? And to deny them is to deny the reality of our lived experience of the world. Which is where Desired Landscapes comes in.

Surprise Subscription #10

Bench Players - Rop van Mierlo

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

Surprise Subscription #8

mono.kultur #49 Santiago Sierra

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.
