“With our eyes firmly set on the future rather than the past, it’s sometimes surprising to stop and catch our breath for a moment only to realise, ‘Blimey! We’ve passed issue #30 already!’ Meaning: High time for our second collector’s box set mono.archiv #02, gathering mono.kultur issues #16 to 30 in one pretty and screenprinted box, in that strange grey/blue/green hue which tends to lean towards one or the other depending on the time of day. Once again including a sweet little wrap-around (water!), and once again your very last chance to get your hands on beloved issues such as Miranda July or Ai Weiwei, which have been well and truly sold out for what feels like years. Strictly limited to 150 copies, and 150 only.”

Fantastic Man #16, Jop van Bennekom & Gert Jonkers (Eds.), published by TOP Publishers BV.

It is a total pleasure that today’s recommendation is the brand new 16th issue of FANTASTIC MAN. It’s a magnificently hefty one, weighing in at 294 pages, and features an idyllic romp through the British Isles with photographer ALASDAIR McLELLAN, an instructional manual for the noble pursuit of ironing, a vast range of practical fashions shot in the Alps, a uniquely Dutch proposal for eating and a number of interesting men such as THOMAS JONES, NICHOLAS LOWE, MARK LEE, ROMAN COPPOLA, RYAN McGINLEY, HOLLY JOHNSON, GIORGIO MORODER, JONATHAN SAUNDERS and, of course, cover star OLIVER SIM, the singer of THE XX, who is pretty much the most exciting man in popular music today.
