Foam Magazine

How often do you open a magazine a literally drool over every page? The wonderful people at Foam sent over their latest issue and it is ridiculous! I gushed like a schoolgirl about their previous issue and this is more of the same. And by “same” I mean: 170+ pages, foldouts, photo inserts, glossy pages, matte pages, gorgeous layouts! The theme of this issue is Wonder and there’s this beautiful bleeding watercolor type treatment throughout. ahhhh.. Just get it, you’ll see what I mean!

The Barcelona-based artist explores our relationship to household objects by making subtle and not-so-subtle alterations rendering them completely useless. He says the works have “to do with the human being’s inability to identify with the structures he himself has created”.

Have a look at more images below.
