Time to get serious in 2020 with MacGuffin #8, an issue devoted to that most studious of objects: the desk. MacGuffin pulls open desk drawers and points up desk plants, surveying a succession of clean desks and messy desks, radical desks and resolute desks, [expand title="more"] makeshift desks and talk show desks, not to mention the fine art of office pranking and presidential doodling. Featuring Francois Dallegret, Egon Eiermann, Enzo Mari, Saint Jerome, Superstudio, Jan Švankmajer and many, many more.[/expand]

Dress up this spring with The Trousers of MacGuffin, dedicated to an object that is so much more than a garment: it’s a mirror of desires and passions far beyond reason. [expand title="more"]In ‘The Trousers’, MacGuffin empties the wardrobe and slips into survival gear, baggies with attitude, working uniforms, drainpipes, cargo shorts, laced-fly jeans, sexless saggy sack cloths, tent slacks, yoga leggings and bad-boy trousers. The burning question of course is: are pants really all about ass? Featuring Umberto Eco, Paul Gorman, Emily King, Gert Jonkers, Karlheinz Weinberger, Emma McClendon and many many more.[/expand]

Rolling, shiny and bubbly, the ball has a ubiquitous presence almost wherever you look. It’s frequently the dream object of the architect and the passion of millions of sport games fans around the world. It represents the earth on which we live and bore a mythical quality in the times of the ancient Greeks. “A sphere at all times, is equal only to itself; it is the perfect symbol of equality.” Said architect Boullé in the 18th century. In four main sections, this sixth issue of MacGuffin explores the balls that roll around the world, those that shine in the halls of disco, and those that come disguised as domes, spheres, balloons, orbs and fizzy bubbles.

Mysterious forces are said to the miniature version of the cucumber. Whether as substantive indicator for pregnancy, as unbeatable hangover cure or as ultimate super power source for athletes the inconspicuous pickle is much more than a nutrition booster. In it’s latest issue the annual Club Sandwich Magazine has looked deeper in the jar – and came across some rather kooky, unconventional facets and facts about the cornichon. From Austrian artist Erwin Wurm who preferably portraits himself as gherkin in all shapes and sizes, to legendary Henry J. Heinz who became the king of ketchup on behalf of the pickle and the hashtag #touchthepickle as symbol of the women’s liberation in India – just to recall some facts of the extraordinary cultural and historical implication which slumber within this immortal vegetable. Thus, Club Sandwich easily joins our magazine shelf of curiosities right by the side of Macguffin, Science of the Secondary and F Food. Culture – to name only a few of our favourite monothematic feasts. Buy
