Sometimes it’s easy to get carried away with modern life, perched happily on the apogee of human innovation in a tech-savvy world of comfort and convenience. What that kind of flabby mindset needs is a reality check, and Colors magazine has just the thing. The latest issue in its ongoing survival series is a guide to the big-one – apocalypse and how best to get through one.

The cheerful write-off on the website points out: “Civilization could end in a hundred ways. Yet the relentless onslaught of disaster prophecies leaves you overwhelmed, exhausted and unsure who to believe.” Fair point, but luckily for those of us afflicted with this so-called “apocalypse fatigue” help is here with a one-stop guide to riding out the worst things in the world.

The drawback though is that if you do need something to burn during a nuclear attack or a flash flood, this magazine is just far too beautiful to sacrifice. A lovely intricately-illustrated monochrome poster-cum-cover leads into the crisp, clear content, with the designers making excellent use of some stunning photography. A seriously good-looking treatment of this uber-dramatic subject matter.
