The good folk over at Kilimanjaro magazine never fail to impress. With a format that begs to be handled and content that always demands your time and attention they’ve been on to a winning formula for some time now. Issue #13 of the magazine is hot off the press, once again demonstrating that big is most definitely beautiful, and in the case of bespoke publications, less will never be more.
Issue #13 is all about photography – or one particular photographer – entitled A Love Letter to Roni Horn, encompassing a three-piece volume of unusual formats and generous imagery interspersed with interviews and commentary from the likes of John Waters, Adrian Searle and Horn herself. As an in-depth study of a legendary artist, Kilimanjaro does itself proud, providing enough written content to satisfy those in search of Horn-based literature while also allowing her photography ample space to breathe on the page. To be honoured in such a well-crafted publication must surely be a delight.
