The fourth in a series of bi-annual collectable fanzines
which seek to uncover the stories behind the clothing we wear
now at Fondazione Sozzani Bookshop.

FASHION CRAFT REVOLUTION
is an extensive examination of how we interact with craft in the age of the Anthropocene
–  from the effects of globalisation, to the plight of the homeworker;
the crafts that are on the brink of extinction, and the ones that are alive, kicking,
and actively embracing new technologies to ensure the hand-made
and the artisanal remain relevant for the future.

Printed in full colour throughout with a pull out pattern section
with how to’s from Katie Jones, Mindful Mending and Pragya Sharma.

The Theatre of Apparitions by Roger Ballen
published by Thames and Hudson
available at Fondazione Sozzani Bookshop.

Separated into seven chapters or “acts” the book
is a treat of Ballenesque images taking readers on a deep journey into their subconscious.
Inspired by the sight of hand-drawn carvings on blacked-out windows in an abandoned women’s prison,
Roger Ballen started to experiment using different spray paints on glass
and then ‘drawing on’ or removing the paint with a sharp object to let natural light through.
The results are like prehistoric cave-paintings:
the black, dimensionless spaces on the glass are canvases onto which Ballen carves his thoughts and emotions.
Fossil-like facial forms and dismembered body parts coexist uncomfortably
with vaporous, ghost-like shadows. Earthly and otherworldly, physical and spiritual,
his work transcends all traditional concepts of photography.

 KALEIDOSCOPE ISSUE #34
(Spring/Summer ’19)
marking the tenth anniversary of the magazine, coming with a set of four collectible covers
now at Fondazione Sozzani Bookstore.

Among others it features an interview to the late H.R. GIGER by Hans Ulrich Obrist and Patrick Frey,
on how his work progressively shifted from abstract to figurative, from organic to apparatus
—culminating in his concept design for Alien,
which catapulted to fame his daunting vision on death, futurism
and the apotheosis of the woman.

The issue comes with “YUNG PALM,”
a special supplement created by
Harmony Korine in partnership with Gucci.
