These are some pages from the fifth issue of my zine Lost, published circa 2001. It was distributed at opening of my thesis exhibition back at school. It featured a memory-lapsed account of my early exposures to graffiti, a tribute to the MAK Crew, and some dope street photography by Acme SH/LOD. It's been long out of print, but here are a couple of ways to check out the entire issue:
You can save some trees and view the whole issue online here.
Or make your own bootleg copy by downloading the large print-ready PDF here.

This video/song is so many shades of wrong (besides ripping off Blur,) I debated even posting about it. Graffiti is really now just a fashion accesory. First, modelette Patty Hearst thinks she's down with the sickness; and now, Miss Thang Lindsay Lohan picks up a spraycan... I guess the "art scene" really is poppin'. Terrible.
(And if watching the whole video ain't enough for you, there's a 'making of' showing us how Lindsay gets down with the street art here.)

Slanted Magazine No.14
Grotesque 2 : Summer 2011
Published by MAGMA Brand Design
I recently received a nice package from Slanted in the post. Slanted is a super fresh design and typography publication published by MAGMA Brand Design out of Germany. The current issue focuses on grotesque typefaces and features their implementation and history.
Of special note is a razor sharp photographic essay on immigration in Spain as a transit point into Europe by Miguel Hahn and Jan-Christoph Hartung, a type essay featuring book covers designed using grotesque type by Robert Schumann, and an article on Japanese graphic designer Kiyoshi Awazu by the homie Ian Lynam.
A selection of pages from the current issue is viewable online here.
