Giveaway: Lodown Art Editions


Once a year, Berlin-based Lodown Magazine releases a special oversized edition focused on contemporary art. These issues are always very visual, with less text, and no product features. We have a set of all 7 art editions to give away to one of our readers! Have a look inside the latest issue, “Renaissance”, below.

If you wanna snag the entire set, recommend a cool magazine for me to check out in the comments below. I’ll select a winner on December 18th.
