Visionaire 56: Solar in Collaboration with Calvin Klein

My favorite Fashion & Art Book: Visionaire, just released their latest edition: Visionaire 56: Solar in Collaboration with Calvin Klein – This book is a piece of art in itself ! We reviewed a few of their past issues, and will probably do a on review on all their past issues soon… The Visionaire 56 issue is using the latest printing technology, you can enjoy the magazine ONLY in black & white, same for the cover with the all-white embroidery. Now walk outside and expose the issue to direct sunlight… The embroidery cover and all the photography inside transfers into color!

No Photoshop & Make-up in French Elle

Unsurprisingly, Monica Bellucci, Eva Herzigova, and Sophie Marceau still look pretty without any make-up or photoshop retouch. It’s also refreshing when a fashion magazine like French Elle decides to endorse your personal aesthetic philosophies.

WAD Marathon : Day 3 – Cover Art

WAD Magazine is the most exciting magazine to receive in the mail, and it all starts with the cover. If you were to remove the display text logo from the cover of every magazine, I can a guarantee you would have a very hard time differentiating one magazine from the next. WAD on the other hand could probably only be mistaken by a blind person…
