A Publisher presents a limited-edition reprint of A Magazine Curated By Maison Martin Margiela (2004). Nearly two decades after its original release, this edition acknowledges the seasonless, timeless nature of A Magazine.
A collectible object in the realm of printed matter, it is a testament to the ongoing relevance of the founding ideals of the Maison Martin Margiela: from the deconstruction of garment-making and the disruption of classical ideals in photography, to such phenomena as street casting, unconventional beauty, subversive communication, and a Dadaist approach to the very concept of fashion and object design.
The 2021 reprint is an identical reprint of the original magazine with matched paper stock and cover treatments, with all original content preserved from cover to cover. The back cover features a short descriptive blurb by the current editorial team.
Selected contributors include: Åbäke, Kanako B. Koga, Bless, Mark Borthwick, Roxane Danset, Kristina De Coninck, Anders Edström, Marina Faust, Inge Grognard, Jacques Habbah, Jonathan Hallam, Katerina Jebb, Tatsuya Kitayama, Ali Mahdavi, Laurent Mercier, Lutz Huelle, Sébastien Meunier, Dorothee Perret, Ola Rindal, Violeta Sanchez, Patrick Scallon, Nigel Scott, Ronald Stoops, Kyoichi Tsuzuki, Bob Verhelst.
Each issue contains 1 of 6 archival images from the following photographers which have been issued as 240 x 180mm unsigned prints: Mark Borthwick, Anders Edström, Marina Faust, Jonathan Hallam, Ola Rindal and Ronald Stoops. A charitable donation to Sea Watch and RIACE France has been made in their name, reflecting the commitment of A Publisher to the cause of migrants and refugees in the Mediterranean Sea, and their integration into the European community.
(Please Note: Each issue contains a single print placed at random, in the spirit of the Maison Martin Margiela. The cover wrap does not indicate which print is inside.)
