Weekend Reading Tip... Acne Paper Issue 12

IMG_1361

Each issue of Acne Paper is created around one key idea and is an eclectic yet coherent creative narrative mix that deserves to be savoured. Read and re-read at one's leisure. Issue twelve is the youth issue and explores a number of questions for the reader. What is it like being a young ballet dancer today, or a classical musician, a playwright, or (most interestingly for us) a craftsman? Through interviews, documentary, photography, portraiture, biography, and of course fashion, the latest issue celebrates many young talents, and also those who look upon youth from a creative point of view. At two hundred and fifty six pages, it is the biggest edition to date. The hefty weight of the issue explains why I opted for a full tea pot to accompany my morning read. Of course you can flick through the issue online but for me, this is a publication that could and indeed should, only be enjoyed in hand.

I love Acne but I've forgotten about in recent weeks. I'll be buying a copy soon. Thanks for the tip.

I love Acne magazine because it isn't the typical print that you would expect from a fashion brand. I feel like Acne is very cultural and less fashion-y than the others and that's why I really like it.
