    Ten out of Ten

    Muse
    Break out the bubbly for two magazines celebrating ten. Based in The Hague, Works that Work ends on a high with their tenth and final issue. Over the past five years they highlighted design that brings lasting positive changes through insightful, and sometimes unexpected, features. We're super excited that Apartmento is celebrating ten years with their 20th. We're massive fans. Here's to another ten years.

    No. 2 on our wish list: we're really digging everything that The School of Life are producing lately, particularly with their Sydney outpost just around the corner. We'd take anything from the shop and to keep our grey matter in perfect tune, take a class or two.

    On The Street

    Muse

    With just six issues under its belt, Flaneur has garnered significant praise across the globe with its take on independent magazine publishing while carving its own path in the process. Each issue takes one street in one city as its focus, delving deep into its unique layers, fragmented nature and complexity. They take their research and editorial authenticity seriously with the small team moving to each new city for a couple of months to produce content. With São Paulo high on our visit list we're keen to see what they make of it in the next issue.

Dip in with an online excerpt from the first issue titled The Outsiders, or better still take a tactile approach and grab a copy. Images: Fare.
