Paper is Still Alive!

PRESENTED ON JUN 24, 2015
IN TOKYO @ VOL 126

"Comics, illustration, photography, text, poetry, calligraphy, all media are welcome in Labo."

French illustrator, and Labo publisher, Julie Blanchin presents her experimental, beautifully silk screen handcrafted, limited edition magazine that brings together French and Japanese artists from all walks. Interestingly, Labo Magazine spawned from both inspiration and need, after Blachin's plans to write a book on a expedition to Antarctica with the Japanese Institute of Polar Research suddenly and unexpectedly fell through.

Her storyboards leading up to the book became part of her blog, and would eventually became part of Labo.

"Paper is still alive" she says, calling for new participants and collaborators. Get in touch with her to participate!

New York…Not Nearly How I Pictured It!

BY ROB PENNER
@ VOL 2 ON JUN 16, 2015

Photographer Rob Penner takes us on a decidedly NSFW tour of NYC during the heady times of the late '70's and early '80's, when he worked as an aspiring assistant fashion photographer. From the famed Studio 54 to the wiseguys of Mulberry St it was a helluva ride.

This was "Presentation of the Day" on Monday, August 31st, 2015.
