Another gem I found in a local bookstore. FRAME magazine was alien to me until now. Shame on me! But the universe has a way of reversing things and look now. What I have is a compendium of 50 back issues of magazines in one book. Quite enough for me to be informed in one sitting I reckon. I have been asking for visual inspirations for the past few months. Googling " architecture in Amsterdam " or "minimalist artists in Belgium" and here I am being wowed as I scan the page with all the architecture designers that sound new to me. It was a visual melting pot of architecture + fashion + art + catchy titles +witty articles + clever layouts. The fact that it's a magazine based in the Netherlands is a major factor too. I am quite a big fan of these people. It's my dream country (aside from Australia). The magazine loves Rei Kawakubo so much ...
