ABACO is a new online webzine curated by two italians who live in Tokyo. Very clean and simple (it is composed only of pictures and few words), Issue No. 01 is all about The Metropolis par excellence: TOKYO. We like it! Well done.

CUBE™ is an art bookzine printed in 1001 copies. Last issue, just released, is the Number 5 and we've been lucky enough to browse a copy. The first impression is that this issue is even better than the previous ones. In particular we've found really interesting the monographic part dedicated to a series of unpublished photos of landscapes by Craig Stecyk III.
And more: the project made by Jöel Tettamanti in Qaqortoq (Greenland), with the coloured houses creating a contrast with the pure white of the snow is simply fantastic. Not to mention the homage paid to Giorgio Morandi by Duane Michals ... and we could go on and on.
The list of artists featured in this issue is impressive. Together with the previously mentioned, you'll find there also artworks by Peter Sutherland, Geoffroy de Boismenu, Delta, Mode2, Marc Gouby, Gareth McConnell, Boogie, Danijel Zezelj, Harri Peccinotti, Thierry Ledé and many others...
Don't ask us where is possible to get a copy of it, because Cube™ is not for sale and it is given to a selected list of "lucky" people.

In 1993 Jun Takahashi and Nigo opened a very small space in Harajuku, Tokyo, called Nowhere. It was, in a certain way, an epoch-making event for the Streetwear's World. Next 17th of January, 16 years later, Nowhere will be back, in a special space that Dover Street Market will be opening in its basement. We can't wait. Simply we can't wait. We just need to book a plane for London. NOW!

Steven Vögel at Black Lodges met Woody (the Editor of Sneaker Freaker) and talked with him about the past, the present and the future of the trainers's crazy world. In our opinion a very interesting interview that you can't miss. Check it out here.
