Tears from the Secret Sense Of Japanese Magazine Design
I love the way contemporary fashion gets refocused through the prism of Japanese culture. Many a times when I flip through Men's No No, the brother publication to Spur magazine, I wonder why is it that no "Western" mag has managed to capture those street style pages with the vivacity apprent in the pages of MNN. You get a sense of a strict and structured design policy but certain elements: namely the product pages and those street style snaps are just so gorgeously organized it creates a form of cultural envy. Well I'm hoping this new book The Secret Sense Of Japanese Magazine Design will dissolve the mystery.
