              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. More

You don’t need to be told that we are living in a moment ­of total­ world abolition, a frantic race to the inevitable. The begin­ning of the end begins here, in the year 2131.[expand title="more"]It’s been 105 years since our founders published the sixth issue of Food& Magazine, the year of unprecedented un­predictability. Then, our world was infected with great plagues, old and new: the rise of COVID 19, white supremacy and the climate crisis. What warnings we had were brushed under the carpet. These cruel dictators nuked humanity with fake news, obliterating all love, logic and truth. It comes as no surprise that historians named this the ‘Fire and Ice’ epoch —people with cold hearts in a rapidly heating world, melting all that was once good. And so, as history tells it, the thawed ice flooded Earth, flushing the blue planet red. Our old world was destroyed to just a small fleck of ash flitting about in space. You can often see it, dancing in the frosted windows of our lunar space stations, those little towns built as emergency refuge by the last remaining humans—our grandparents. But running away from this earthly disaster didn’t mean the problem disappeared. Today we face the repercussions of our ancestor’s failures, The Great Gravitational Collapse. As climate change in the cosmos persists it erodes with it the inter-magnetic structure of our mini-verse, warping the volatile belt between Mars and Jupiter and causing asteroids to propel towards the Moon—our new home. If the solar-system continues to catapult in this dangerous direction, then this issue may be our last. With disaster in mind, we’ve created an extravagantly low-key doomsday catalogue of memories and musings on food by you the people—a farewell kiss to mother Earth as we once knew her. So lock yourself into your nearest available G-zero reading pod, pour yourself a cup of vacuum-infused evaporated chai and whilst forgetting that the universe is collapsing around you, enjoy.[/expand]

San Francisco, 2017. Clinton's in the White House, Brexit never happened - and Verity Jane's got herself a new job.[expand title="more"]They call Verity 'the app-whisperer,' and she's just been hired by a shadowy start-up to evaluate a pair-of-glasses-cum-digital-assistant called Eunice. Only Eunice has other ideas. Pretty soon, Verity knows that Eunice is smarter than anyone she's ever met, conceals some serious capabilities and is profoundly paranoid - which is just as well since suddenly some bad people are after Verity. Meanwhile, in a post-apocalyptic London a century from now, PR fixer Wilf Netherton is tasked by all-seeing policewoman Ainsley Lowbeer with interfering in the alternative past in which Verity and Eunice exist. It appears something nasty is about to happen there - and fixing it will require not only Eunice's unique human-AI skillset but also a little help from the future. A future which Verity soon fears may never be . . .[/expand]

Coming soon from Taschen, ICONS showcases the historical collaboration between two iconic forces: (fashion) designer Virgil Abloh and Nike Inc.  Two big players who came together to reinvent ten iconic sneaker designs, from the Air Jordan 1 to Air Presto. ‚A minimum of two‘ seemed to be the magic formula when London-based Zak Group came on board to translate the sneaker-recontextualising, meta-cultural design project into book form. Since both Abloh and Zak Group are well-known for their trans-disciplinary, process-oriented work, they made the perfect match: not simply sneaker-heads, but perfectly positioned to transform consumer objects into cultural artifacts. We had a little chat with Zak Kyes about the making of the much-hyped, impossibly green volume. Pre-Order here! More
