Heavy in Print

Back when magazines had balls. Found this Frank 151 magazine in my vault from 2004. In this edition the New York based culture hub have teamed up with Alife to put together this issue. Its content is heavily Wu related as Alife & Wu have been collaborating since the start.

It would be great to see magazines teaming up with actual artists who hold cultural significance and not just hype. How many magazines have we seen dedicated to Kanye and his cheese fest or what about Bieber on the cover of Love.....get over it already...

All this and its FREE.

If i-D had bigger balls they'd have done a Grime edition by now. To ignore that movement is a madness.

Part 2 of this post will feature the Little White Lies x Beastie Boys edition. Coming soon.

where can you get this?

Nick said...

Frank151 isn't available internationally at the moment, hopefully that will change soon.

You can pick up the latest issue of Frank151 from Present on Shoreditch High Street.

iD have done a grime issue about 3 years ago.

I did look but couldn't find one. If you can get images that'd be bless.

Nick said...

Sweet, didn't know you could get it here since Borders and that went belly up. Will go and cop one. Frank did a London issue ages ago featuring Zoltar think about 09
