Sitting resplendent in transparent casing on the It’s Nice That banqueting table is a rather glorious new publication. Heavy typography cloaks a model apparently spitting water at us on the cover, and it was little surprise to learn that the superb design throughout was created by Bureau Mirko Borsche.
The simple black or white sans serif type is a lovely counterpoint to the innovative and outré art direction, which includes a lot of nips, stockings on heads and some spectacular face-pieces created from disembodied dolls’ limbs. Full bleed images make for a sumptuous read, combined with the vast scale and heavy paper stock. The mag is mostly in German so sadly we can’t understand it, but heck who needs to when the design’s this good.
